“We have dismissed him,” he said.
Bakanov noted that there could be no other decision as Shaitanov is suspected in the commitment of a few criminal offenses.
The SBU head did not specify when the order of Shaitanov’s dismissal was signed.
Bakanov noted that after the dismissal Valeriy Shaitanov will keep his military rank.
On April 14, the counterintelligence of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) detained Major General of the service Valeriy Shaitanov who planned the murder of volunteer Adam Osmayev on the assignment of the Russian special services. According to the materials of the case, Shaitanov, who is one of the former heads of the Special Operations Center A of the SBU, was in the secret service under cover name Bobyl with FSB Colonel Igor Yegorov.
