Anatoliy Hrytsenko, leader of Civil Position political party and former defense minister, was called for questioning to the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), as an official, who might provide information on circumstances of the Russian occupation of Donbas and annexation of Crimea, the SBU press-office reported.
‘It is true that the investigators of the Security Service of Ukraine invited citizen of Ukraine Anatoliy Hrytsenko as a witness for interrogation on January 15, 2019. The invitation is due to the fact he discovered information on the circumstances of the Russian occupation of Donbas and annexation of Crimea in one of the television broadcasts,’ reads the message.
Crimea was annexed by Russia after the illegal referendum held on the peninsula in March 2014. Earlier, the Russian military captured all strategic military objects and buildings of the key authoritative bodies. Neither Ukraine nor the rest of the civilized countries recognized the results of the referendum. A number of the European and the world countries, including Ukraine, imposed the economic sanctions against Russia.
