The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) has opened criminal cases against Kharkiv mayor Hennadiy Kernes and Kharkiv Oblast governor Mykhaylo Dobkin, said former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko from the Maidan stage, reports the newspaper Segodia.

“I talked to some high-ranking SBU officials, and they said that the cases against Kernes and Dobkin were opened based on their separatist statements,” said the civic activist.

Kernes and Dobkin have made repeated statements in support of the federalization of Ukraine. Tomorrow, Dobkin intends to hold a convention of the Party of Regions MPs from the South and East of Ukraine, during which appeals for secession are expected.
