This was stated by head of the SBU Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainian News.
"We started the cleansing in February, as soon as I returned to the SBU. Since that time more than 2,500 employees were fired. I, as no one else realized how difficult it is," Nalyvaichenko said.
He added that in order to fulfill the law "On the Cleansing of Power" 108 employees have already been dismissed.
In addition, he said, on Nov. 24 the SBU will conduct a full inspection of all remaining personnel, regardless of positions.
Nalyvaychenko stressed that the SBU will conduct the process transparently.
The head of the SBU said that for him, together alongside purification the renewal of the Service is a principal matter, so that the youth could use their chance.
