== can't compare a couple of identity values

Ok, hello everybody! I got one strange problem. Can someone help me?

In this if(msg.sender == leader && auctionStatus == Status.Ended) block i check if msg.sender equals an leader variable

if(msg.sender == leader && auctionStatus == Status.Ended){
    recipient = leader;
    value = bids[leader] - (price - step);
    usecase = "leader";

And i know auctionStatus equals Ended

But for some reason even if both variables: msg.sender and leader are definitely equals this comparsion returns false
