Putin’s aide Surkov pulled the strings as snipers shot at Maidan protesters – Ukraine’s SBU

Vladislav Surkov, Russia’s president aide, stage-managed activities of foreign sniper groups in Kyiv in February 2014, Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, Head of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU), told 1+1 TV channel.

According to Nalyvaichenko, Russia also blunts Ukraine’s efforts to investigate murders in Kyiv.

Ukraine’s law enforcement agencies do have documented proof of Russia’s illegal activities in the country, Nalyvaychenko stressed.

“As part of this case we have job titles, last names, copies of passports, dates of their entry and departure, their telephone providers and places of accomodation, [we know] how president Putin’s adviser Surkov was coordinating their actions in Kyiv,” he said.

Three groups of agents of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) arrived in Kyiv in December 2013 and February 2014 to organise crackdowns on pro-EU protesters, the top official stated.

In addition, a number of law enforcement officers and SBU employees turned out to be traitors and work for foreign intelligence services. Some of them have fled to Russia and are staying there under cover of the FSB, Nalyvaychenko said.

Over 100 protesters died on Maidan in the course of the Revolution of Dignity, including Belarusian Mikhail Zhyzneuski. Today the Heaven’s Hundred commemoration gatherings are to be held in Kyiv.
