The head of Lviv regional state administration Oleh Syniutka promised to filer a complaint to the Security Service over the support of "people's republics" on the part of the organizers and participants of Lviv Security Forum, which is taking place today at the Ukrainian Catholic University. This was reported by the European Truth agency.
Syniutka was invited and spoke at the opening of the forum on Thursday and attended a panel discussion on the issue "Can the war in modern Europe be prevented?"
During this panel, Ukrainian and Western experts, including James Sherr of Chatham House and John Herbst of the Atlantic Council, discussed how to stop Russian aggression on the European continent.
The agency notes that during the debates Syniutka said that the meeting is promoting anti-Ukrainian ideas. The basis for this assertion was the fact that the Russian-backed separatist cells in Transnistria, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Donetsk and Luhansk "People's Republics", and the annexed Crimea were marked on the English-language map behind the participants.
"When today at the forum the names of "people's republics" are written on the official screen, I consider it a provocation, and today I will turn to the Security Serivce to give an assessment," Syniutka said.
Among the organizers of the Lviv security forum, there are the Lviv city council, politicians representing the Samopomich political party of Andriy Sadovy.
As it was reported earlier there were disagreements between Syniutka and Sadovy over the solution of the problem with the removal of garbage from Lviv.
