Agency Head Artem Sytnyk stressed that NABU detectives were acting in a lawful manner while trying to arrest Judge Oleksii Buran.

"We were told that the measures taken by the Bureau members in response to the actions of the judge were not strong enough. I emphasize that the NABU detectives operate solely within the confines of the law. I am convinced that the purpose of any investigation is to achieve a just punishment for acts of corruption in accordance with the law," Artem Sytnyk said.
