President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko believes that the counterintelligence activities of the security Service of Ukraine should be raised to a higher level.

“This (counter-intelligence – if) component of the service should be raised higher as required by the real external threats to Ukraine, in particular the activation of anti-Ukrainian activities of the Russian special services, which is clearly manifested in the last days,” – said P. Poroshenko on Friday in the center of special operations in the Kiev region in the celebrations in honor of the 25th anniversary of the creation of the SBU.

According to him, the handwriting of the Russian special services can be seen immediately: “Lubyanka since the days of Stalin and Beria had the experience of political assassinations of regime opponents who were abroad.”

Poroshenko recalled the murder of Alexander Litvinenko, which was carried out by Russian security services in London .
