”I order to make Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko (by consent) member of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine,” the document says.
In addition, Viktor Hvozd, who was dismissed from the position of the Foreign Intelligence Service`s chief on April 29, was removed from the NSDC under a presidential order.
