This was announced by SBU Chief of Staff Oleksandr Tkachuk, Censor.NET reports citing 112 Ukraine.
"We have ordered expert examination of the documents. As of now we only have access to the same files as the public. We have no direct contact with the hackers and cannot say whether the published documents have been processed after they were received through Surkov's e-mail," Tkachuk said.
According to him, some files from those published are the same as seized by SBU in connection with criminal investigation of separatism in Zakarpattia.
Tkachuk said the plan on granting and promotion of federal status for Zakarpattia coincides with the documents seized from one of separatist leaders of the region, who is currently in Moscow.
As reported earlier, the members of Ukrainian Cyberhunta group announced they hacked the e-mail account of Russian president's aide Vladislav Surkov by making about 1 GB of obtained data publicly available.
Hackers state that published documents contain a plan of destabilization of Ukraine. They allegedly found it in correspondence between Surkov and his assistant Karpov P.N., who signs as Pavlov Nikolay Nikolayevich for conspiracy purposes. The documents titled "Plan 'Shatun' of urgent measures for destabilization of situation in Ukraine" allegedly outlines the period of November 2016 through March 2017. They include the plan for providing federal status for Zakarpattia.
People's deputy Anton Herashchenko is certain the published correspondence of Surkov on plans for Ukraine's destabilization is authentic.
