 I don't exclude Russia's trace. Someone wants to maximally delay hearing of GRU officers' case - Hrytsak on arson attack on judge Didyk's office

Another version of the arson attack on the office of Holosiivskyi district court of Kyiv judge Mykola Didyk, according to SBU chief Vasyl Hrytsak, suggests someone trying to conceal the destruction of documents related to some other case by a sabotage attack connected with the trial of Russian GRU operatives.

SBU chief Vasyl Hrytsak said at a briefing, Censor.NET reports citing 112 Ukraine.

"Indeed, there was an arson attack on the Holosiivskyi district court. One office burned down and we can only suppose for what purpose and who could do it. Let's start with the fact that on the one hand, the Holosiivskyi district court is hearing high-profile criminal case of two Russian GRU officers, you know what happened with their lawyer, but I do not think there is only one case of these two Russian nationals considered by the court. It is very convenient to use this case as a disguise to burn down an office, if you know that this office contains materials related to other criminal proceedings, and everything will be pinned on this case. I do not exclude Russia's trace to be honest, because analyzing all the data that we get from open and private sources, we see that some people want to take every effort in order to maximally delay the hearing of GRU officers' case," Hrytsak said.
