SBU tried to remove from broadcasting story on how its officers use elite-class automobiles

17.10.2015, 00:38

On October 15, the Security Service of Ukraine attempted to stop the broadcasting  of the program "Skhemy"’ story about elite-class cars that SBU officers uses. Journalist Mykhailo Tkach informed about this in his blog. Right before the broadcasting, they received a letter signed by the head of the capital's SBU administration Hluhovskyi, warning them that broadcasting this particular story is against the law. For the context, earlier SBU staff attacked and detained journalists, who were investigating corruption in SBU.

The channel’s editorial office, Tkach wrote in his blog, considers this letter an attempt to further pressure the media outlet, and their hints that the officers in question might be in danger because they participate in ATO is just an attempt to cover up the lack of desire to identify the corrupted officers of the Service.
