“I fulfill the promise and inform publicly: today, I file the report on my dismissal from the post of the SBU Head to President-elect of Ukraine. I also report that according to the order established by Military statute, all deputy heads of the SBU and members of my team filed the reports, all of them who defend Ukraine on the most difficult days of the Russian armed aggression,” Hrytsak said.
He noted that the SBU lost 27 its officers during the Russian aggression; however, despite all difficulties, today it corresponds to the best special services of the world.
“While President of Ukraine and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine do not solve the issue, who is going to head the Security Service of Ukraine, the current personnel of the SBU will continue to defend the security of the society and the Ukrainian people,” he stated.
Vasyl Hrytsak headed the special service on July 2, 2015.
