Paramilitary structures which are beyond control of the armed forces or state law enforcement agencies shall be disarmed. This was stated by Chairman of the Security Service of Ukraine Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, Censor.NET reports citing LigaBusinessInform.
"Now is the time for the military leadership, the leadership of the Interior Ministry, and the leadership of the Security Service to take care of ATO fighters by providing them with proper legal status, the ability to legally join the legitimate armed forces: the armed forces of Ukraine, the Ministry of Interior, the National Guard, or the SBU," Nalyvaichenko said.
"All others who do not want to join shall surrender their weapons and choose a different model of behavior - to leave the ATO area, and moreover, not be a part of any illegal military or paramilitary organizations," the head of the SBU said.
"We are serious about ensuring the fact that the structures that are part of well-coordinated gangs are completely disarmed and their licenses are revoked," Nalyvaichenko said.
