Karpliuk said: "First, I have not fled from Ukraine. I'm not going to disclose my location for one simple reason: we have just heard what the representative of the Prosecutor General's Office said. Besides, I was informed last night that there was a clear political order to arrest Karpliuk for 60 days, carry out rough arrest with the use of force. That is why I do not disclose my whereabouts."
