Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin compared the working methods of the security Service of Ukraine (SBU) with the actions of the Gestapo, the secret state police of the Third Reich, which operated in the years 1933-1945. The corresponding entry he posted on his page in Facebook on Friday, March 24.

“In 1941, they have passed the standards of the Gestapo,” wrote Rogozin, commenting on the statement of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on the intention to reform the SBU.

The national security Council and defense of Ukraine will soon consider the concept of reforming of SBU taking into account the experience of NATO, RIA Novosti reported. It is assumed that the individual functions of the SBU, which is uncharacteristic of classical intelligence, will be gradually transferred to other law enforcement agencies.

On 15 February it became known that Poroshenko has replaced the head of the security Service of Ukraine in Kherson, Sumy, Mykolaiv, Ternopil and Zaporizhzhya regions. The new leaders also emerged within the Department of counterintelligence protection of state interests in the field of information security SBU and the Department of protection of national statehood of the security service.
