The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine performed an illegal act when it asked for the FBI assistance while searching the State Migration Service office. Yuriy Lutsenko, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General said that in his interview with 1+1 TV channel.   

Previously, Head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau Artem Sytnyk reported that the FBI helped them investigate the cases of corruption in the State Migration Service and illegal production of amber.

‘Artem Sytnyk said it was a joint operation of the NABU and the FBI. If that’s true, I have a question – who actually let the foreign special service act in Ukraine? As far as I know, the FBI agents arrived in Ukraine to help investigate the murder of Pavlo Sheremet. But without respective legal procedures, the whole operation is illegal,’ Lutsenko said.

As 112 International reported, the NABU, Ukraine's National Anti-Corruption Bureau, had their agent detained by the SBU, Ukraine's state security service; the latter reported that a NABU agent induced a high-rank official of the State Migration Service into a crime.
