Specialists of the Research Institute of Special Equipment and Judicial Examinations of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) have confirmed the authenticity of the voices of former Head of Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili and fugitive Ukrainian oligarch Serhiy Kurchenko that were recorded during their conversation, spokeswoman for the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) Larysa Sarhan has said.

"The Ukrainian Research Institute of Special Equipment and Judicial Examinations of the SBU conducted a phonoscopic examination, which confirms the authenticity of the voices in the recorded conversations between Saakashvili and Kurchenko," she said.

Sarhan added that the words and phrases that belong to them were personalized in the protocol following a secret search operation.

"Currently, about 15 people who help Ukrainian law enforcement agencies document the criminal offenses of M. Saakashvili, S. Kurchenko, O. Dynnyk, S. Dangadze, have been questioned as witnesses and are under the protection of the state," she said.

On December 5, the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine released an audio recording of a telephone conversation allegedly between Saakashvili and Kurchenko. The interlocutors discussed cooperation on the audio recording, allegedly aimed at overthrowing the current government in Ukraine.

The Prosecutor General's Office suspects that Saakashvili's political activity was sponsored by Ukrainian oligarch Serhiy Kurchenko, who, along with another entourage of former President Viktor Yanukovych, fled Ukraine. The money should have been spent on the organization of "rallies of disobedience" to overthrow the current authorities in Ukraine.
