The so-called “State Security Ministry” of unrecognized “Donetsk People’s Republic” (DPR) states that it possesses information about a prepared assassination attempt on Head of Political Council of Party “Opposition platform – For life” Viktor Medvedchuk, as Ukrayinska Pravda reported.
The assassination attempt on Medvedchuk should be committed by one of the specially trained groups of the military men of the 8th Detached Regiment of Special Forces (A-0553) based in Khmelnytsky.
“The main developer and perpetrator of the campaign on the elimination of the undesirable politicians is the Chief Intelligence Department of the Defense Ministry of Ukraine. Head of the Department Vasyl Burba manages this work and his deputy Pavlo Yatsyuk directly develops the process. The Security Service of Ukraine has to get operative information about the lifestyle of the politicians. Head of the National Statehood Department Danylo Dotsenko organizes the surveillance of the potential victims in the security service,” the message said.
The so-called “State Security Ministry” stated that the assassination attempt should take place on behalf of “one of the nationalist organizations, the activity of which is completely controlled by the Ukrainian special services”.
As we reported earlier, Viktor Medvedchuk, the politician and the head of 'Ukrainsky Vybir' (Ukrainian Choice) political party faces prosecution in Ukraine. Prosecutor General's Office has opened the case against him under two charges.
Members of the European Parliament condemned the criminal proceeding against Viktor Medvedchuk, the representative of the "Opposition Platform - For Life" political party.
