This was announced by Security Service of Ukraine's (SBU) department chief Anatolii Dublyk, Censor.NET reports citing 112 Ukraine.
The SBU claims it has documents that disclose a plan to destabilize the social and political situation in Ukraine. This information is confirmed by correspondence seized from the mailbox of Russian President Vladimir Putin's aide Vladislav Surkov. The plan stipulates holding mass protests across Ukraine to discredit the state authorities.
"It's about organizing early parliamentary elections in our country so as to bring pro-Russian forces into the new parliament only with a view to revise the European course and change the external political vector of our state. The protests are to kick off on Nov. 15 with the all-Ukrainian rally of bank depositors. On Nov. 17, the focus of the protests will shift to the issue of raised tariffs. After that, protesters are supposed to block the work of government structures and voice their expanded claims and demands to the government," Dublyk explained.
The SBU urged people "not to let themselves be used by Russia's secret services which do not shun any means to destabilize and destroy Ukraine."
As previously reported, Ukrainian hacktivists from Cyberhunta allegedly gained access to the mailbox of Russian President Vladimir Putin's aide Vladislav Surkov Oct. 24.
The hackers claim that the published documents constitute a plan to destabilize Ukraine outlined in the online correspondence between Surkov and his assistant Pavel Karpov naming himself Nikolay Pavlov for the sake of conspiracy. This very Pavel Karpov was previously recognized by Ukrainian pilot Nadiia Savchenko as one of her captors.
The hacktivists published papers titled "Plan for urgent measures to destabilize the social and political situation in Ukraine" codenamed "Shatun" [insomniac bear - ed.] allegedly covering the period between Nov. 2016 and March 2017. These documents also contain the so-called plan to grant federal status to the Zakarpattia region.
The SBU considers the Zakarpattia documents, allegedly obtained by Ukrainian hackers from the Surkov's mailbox, to be authentic.
