Censor.NET reports referring to the NSDC press service.
"Starting from 2014, Russian secret services have been systematically working to discredit the leaders of the Maidan and invent loads of compromising evidence against, in particular, Oleksandr Turchynov, who Russian politicians openly call one of the Kremlin's main enemies.
"The last dirty provocation involved ex-prosecutor Kuzmin and former lawmaker Shepelev, who fled Ukraine's justice and are hiding in the territory of the Russian Federation," the statement reads.
Shepelev is accused of particularly serious crimes committed in Ukraine. He spent some time in a Russian prison and was released after agreeing to cooperate with the FSB. The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine has documents that prove the fact.
"Now Shepelev and Kuzmin are working out their right to hide in Russia from Ukrainian justice, so they readily follow the instructions of the Russian secret services, voicing any absurd nonsense and muddying politicians with an anti-Russian position.
"Fakes from the FSB are first reported by Russian media, which clearly indicates the customer, and then this dirt is mirrored y Ukrainian marginal [media] outlets for money.
"The NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov appeals to the State Financial Monitoring Service of Ukraine and NABU with a request to urgently check their provocative remarks and inform the public about the results," the press service adds.
