"The investigation will continue regardless of any pressure and statements made by the politicians. The agency will comprehensively investigate the case. We are strongly convinced that Krasnov is an agent of the Russian secret service and the case must be appropriately investigated," he said.

"I think that Moscow is now applauding to all participants of this rally for such a support provided to the Russian agent," the SBU Chairman Executive Office head said.

"If it turns out that the agency has been mistaken, the court will confirm it," Tkachuk said.
