The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has no "secret prisons", in particular, in Kharkiv.

Chairman of the Security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Hrytsak said this at the briefing, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We have no secret prisons. Moreover, having met with human rights organizations, we signed a number of documents, orders, which I signed personally... If I'm not mistaken, we have 13 representatives of foreign organizations, primarily from the United Nations, on the list, who will get access to all SBU facilities, without exception," he stressed.

Hrytsak noted that admission to those facilities would be carried out exclusively in accordance with the requirements of current legislation of Ukraine.

In addition, he said, the delegation of human rights activists will soon arrive in Ukraine, and the SBU is ready to accept it.
