Andrii Taranov noted that the growing tension in the Donbas was synchronized with the destabilization in the west of Ukraine. According to him, thorough and fundamental investigation of all circumstances of the incident and regarding all persons involved will be carried out. Corresponding staff decisions will also be taken. "No high-rank patronage or representative mandates will let anyone get away from responsibility," he stressed.
Taranov particularly noted: "Law enforcement bodies will use all means at their disposal to combat black market, smuggling and corruption." "No political force will have any armed branches. No armed units will walk the streets of Ukrainian cities," the deputy head stated.
Chairman of the Security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Hrytsak dwelt on the course of events in Mukacheve on July 11, law enforcement activities and the role of the Right Sector representatives in the incident. "In recent days, more than 40 searches have been conducted with firearms and other evidence of criminal activity having been seized. Four men involved in the incident have been detained. Prosecutor General's Office is investigating three criminal cases on the facts of the events," the SBU chairman stated.
"No one is allowed to walk with firearms across peaceful cities of Ukraine, open fire and justify it by saying they are at war with mafia. Criminals who have committed offenses have no right to hide behind the Ukrainian patriots, who took part in the conflict in the Donbas and the Revolution of Dignity," the SBU chairman stressed.
Vasyl Hrytsak said: "The Security Service of Ukraine together with the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the National Guard, the General Prosecutor's Office will do everything possible to keep the situation in Ukraine stable." According to him, comprehensive measures are being taken to clarify the incident, figure out the channels and persons involved in smuggling activities in the region.
"Armed wrangles, no matter who partakes, discredit the real patriots of Ukraine, which is extremely unacceptable under external aggression," the SBU chairman underlined.
