An unscheduled inspection is underway at the pre-trial detention center of the Security Service of Ukraine in Kyiv. The place is attended by Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko, Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Valeriia Lutkovska, Ombudsman's Representative Mykhailo Chaplyha, and Head of the SBU Vasyl Hrytsak.

Lutsenko's press secretary Larysa Sarhan wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"At this very moment, an unscheduled inspection of the SBU's jail is underway. Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko asked Ombudsman Valeriia Lutkovska and Head of the SBU Vasyl Hrytsak to check one of the detention centers in response to the statement by UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Šimonović about tortures in Ukraine by both militants and the SBU," she noted and published several photos.
