Security Service of Ukraine: Dneprpetrovsk Regional Administration supports criminal bands

Officials of the Dneprpetrovsk Regional State Administration support armed criminal bands acting in the Donetsk and Dnepropetrovsk Regions, says the Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Valentin Nalivaychenko, Korrespondent news web site reports.

‘We realize that both the band which acted in the Donetsk and Dnepropetrovsk Regions and criminals who used arms against law enforcement agents and criminals who abducted people are the same organised criminal group, a single band. It applies for help and sometimes even obtains support and we have grounds to suspect that financing comes from high-ranked officials of the Regional State Administration,’ said Nalivaychenko.

He says that officials of the Dneprpetrovsk Regional State Administration suspend the investigation. ‘All officials and especially in the Dneprpetrovsk Regional State Administration are now threating to our investigators with menaces to

use illegal armed units, in particular, Sych, an enterprise which is allegedly a guarding company. They are now threatening to us with using these armed people in order to stop the investigation and arrest of the murder,’ said Nalivaychenko and assured that the mentioned structures will fail trying to do it.
