Separatist scandal at Information Policy Ministry might involve Russia's special services, - SBU Head Hrytsak

The separatist actions of certain representatives of the public council at the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine might be orchestrated by the Russian special services.

As reported by Censor.NET referring to Interfax-Ukraine, this was announced by Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Hrytsak at a briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday.

"I'd like to say it was the SBU which exposed those individuals who really had to do with the creation of the so called "LPR" and "DPR" terrorist groups... The issue is very interesting, and I do not rule out that the Russian special services are behind all this, because some things indicate this directly," he said, commenting on the issue of separatist-inclined persons at the Ministry of Information Policy public council.

As reported, on Nov. 24, 2015, in Kyiv, the SBU launched an investigation against individuals suspected of providing technical assistance in broadcasting of Novorossiia TV station via the Internet.

At the same time, Kyiv journalists Dmytro Vasylets and Yevhen Tymonin detained for promoting the separatist TV station turned out to be the members of the public council at the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine.
