The PGO reported that through December 2015 by February 2016 investigators were making efforts to call on the phone number that belonged to Makhnitsky to invite the latter to questioning as the witness, but all the attempts were in vain since it appeared a mobile operator doesn't serve such telephone number.

Makhnitsky was acting prosecutor general through February 25 to June 18, 2014.
