The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) confirmed that the relative of the Service employee was captured. The Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Hrytsak announced that on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Unfortunately, they really captured the relative of our colleague. Indeed, unfortunately, the guys, who work in Donetsk and Luhansk administrations and remain true to the oath, have families which remain vulnerable as many of their relatives reside on the territories beyond our control. AS soon as an officer does well, working actively for Ukraine, representatives of the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk republics or any other side come to his place and intimidate people. They reached the point where they kidnap relatives to blackmail our officers,” Vasyl Hrytsak said.
According to him this person shall be included to the list of Ukrainian citizens in captivity.
