In Lviv Region SBU prevents “silent federalization” of Ukraine
In Lviv Region officers of the Security Service of Ukraine, National Police and Prosecutor’s Office detained an offender who tried to pay a top official of the Lviv Regional Council UAH 50 thousand in bribes.
Money was proposed for placing draft decisions on the agenda of the Council aimed to address the President of Ukraine, Prime Minister and Head of the Verkhovna Rada to grant Lviv Region a special economic status and delegate powers of establishing utility tariffs to local authorities.
Such addresses are within realization of a project of so called secret federalization of Ukraine.
A criminal case was instituted under Part 3 Article 369 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
A measure of restraint is being chosen.
Investigative actions are under way.
Please be reminded, that in summer the SBU thwarted another attempt of Russian special services to arrange “silent federalization” in Ukraine.
