Shufrych's house searched, no arrests yet - SBU

Representatives of the Security Service of Ukraine are conducting searches at the home of Ukrainian deputy Nestor Shufrych, but there is no talk of arrest.

This was reported to Ukrinform by sources in the SBU.

"He is suspected of treason. It turns out that Nestor not only regularly got hit in the head in parliamentary fights, but also worked closely with FSB officer and former MP Volodymyr Sivkovych. The same one who coordinated the work of Russian agents in Ukraine from his Moscow office," the source said.

According to him, on the task of Sivkovych, Shufrych was one of the Kremlin's mouthpieces in Ukraine.

"For example, he said that our state is an 'artificial formation'. Now he will have more time to read normal historical literature in prison," the SBU said.

The SBU promised to provide additional information later.
