Separatists in Luhansk were armed by the SBU (Ukrainian Security Service) General?

Separatists in Luhansk were armed by the SBU (Ukrainian Security Service) General?

April 8, 2014

A video interview with the separatists that have occupied the SBU building in Luhansk was posted in the Internet. They alleged that Oleksander Petrulevych, SBU Head in Luhansk Oblast, personally provided them with bulletproof vests and weapons.

“We are using their weapons now, the ones that were in the SBU warehouses. The General himself, the Head of the SBU, allowed us to take these weapons, provided bulletproof vests and everything else we need. Very nice person, held out very well, and we had let him go home late afternoon,” alleged one of the coordinators of the separatists.

Oleksandr Petrulevych was appointed as SBU Head in Luhansk Region on March 2, 2014 by DecreeNo. 282/2014 signed by Oleskandr Turchynov. SBU officers in Luhansk posted an open letter to Oleskandr Turchinov, acting President of Ukraine, and Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, acting SBU Head, in the Internet. In it, the officers mentioned that Mr. Oleksandr Petrulevych does not posess such values as officer’s honor and dignity. The officers wrote quite harshly that Mr. Oleksander Petrulevych actually destroyed all SBU operation readiness in Luhansk. Officers of SBU in Luhansk requested from Mr. Valentyn Nalyvaichenko that Mr. Petrulevych would be brought before a military tribunal and placed in jail till the end of his days.
