The former head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
was detained for state treason, as UNN reported. 
It happened on February 25 in the morning. The Colonel General Volodymyr Zamana is the detainee. The officers of the Military Prosecutor’s Office and Ukraine’s Security Service carry out searches.
The core of the indictment remains unknown.

Volodymyr Zamana became the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in February 2012 and held this post till February 19, 2014. Then, on February 22, 2014, Zamana was appointed as the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada to control the activity of the Defence Ministry of Ukraine, where he has been working till June 2014.

During the February 2014 Euromaidan riots, President Victor Yanukovych (who had earlier promoted Zamana to Chief of the General Staff) sacked Zamana, replacing him with Admiral Yuriy Ilyin. February 22, 2014 the Ukrainian Parliament voted to install Zamana as the Ukrainian Parliamentary Commissioner for the control of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine as the Minister of Defense Pavlo Lebedyev fled to Crimea. When the Second Azarov Government was replaced with the Yatsenyuk Government Lebediev was replaced with Admiral Ihor Tenyukh.
