 "No war between PGO and NABU, as well as between me and Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko," – NABU Head Sytnyk

There is no conflict between the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) and the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO).

As reported by Censor.NET citing 112 Ukraine, this was stated by NABU Director Artem Sytnyk.

"There is no war between the PGO and NABU as well as personally between me and Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko. However, the actions to protect private interests of particular officials and members of the PGO's Major Fraud Investigations Department were made. It was the employees of this department who tried to prevent undercover investigation carried out by the NABU overstepping their authorities and using the facilities of the Prosecutor General's Office and the National Police," he said.

"Their motives are straightforward. The NABU is currently investigating a number of cases into crimes possibly committed by the members of this department, including the crimes of violence. At some point of the inquiry, the investigating judge authorized covert surveillance, including with regard to the employees of the mentioned department," the NABU head explained.
