The Security Service of Ukraine, the National Police and the State Border Guard Service were assigned to strengthen the counter-terrorism and counter-intelligence regimes, - Oleksandr Turchynov
Terrorist acts, sabotage, arrogant murders, provoking mass riots, - all these events that have recently occurred in Ukraine are related to the launch by the Russian secret services of the active phase of the plan to destabilize the domestic political situation in the state.
This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov in his comment.
According to him, terrorist acts against journalists, the SSU employees, the Main Intelligence Directorate and the brutal murder of a serviceman Amina Okuyeva are aimed at instilling fear, despair and the citizens' doubt in the capacity of state institutions to ensure the rule of law and peace in society.
"Given these real threats, the SSU, the National Police and the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine were assigned to strengthen the counter-terrorism and counter-intelligence regimes, border control and protection of the state border with the Russian Federation, to take measures to intensify actions for the removal of unregistered weapons from circulation, ensure effective counteraction to armed crime, smuggling of weapons, ammunition, explosives and their illicit trafficking.
All the power structures of Ukraine will assist in the implementation of these measures, as well as, I hope, the ATO veterans and all the indifferent citizens of the country", - Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine summarized.
