Derkach said that the surveillance was strengthened after his conversation with the NABU detective.

The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) at the behest of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), reinforced the “illegal surveillance” of MP Andrii Andriyovich Derkach because of the case of the unlawful interference of the anti-corruption bureau to the election of the US president. The People’s Deputy wrote this on his Facebook and published an appeal to Andrii Parubiy.

As it is noted in the document, the surveillance was strengthened after the conversation between Derkach and the detective from the NABU.

“The GPU (The General Prosecutor`s office of Ukraine) initiated a pre-trial investigation. Immediately after that I, my assistants and journalists from “Era-Media” were put under illegal surveillance by the SBU at the NABU`s behest. I requested the law enforcement agencies to influence the situation. However, the surveillance was strengthened”. – Derkach noted.

In the appeal of the People’s Deputy to Parubiy, it is noted that Yurii Kravchenko, the Director of the Kharkiv sub-office of the NABU, and Vladislav Kosinskiy, the Head of the SBU in the Sumy region, could be behind the strengthening of the illegal surveillance.

“The management of the NABU, using the credentials, material and technical capabilities of V. Kosinskiy, the Head of the SSU in the Sumy region, and Y. Kravchenko, the Director of the Kharkiv territorial administration of the NABU, is settling the scores for my political activity, including reporting on illegal interference of the NABU to the election of the President of the United States of America D. Trump”, the People’s Deputy writes in the document.

Derkach requests Andrii Parubiy, the Head of the Verkhovna Rada, to respond to the actions of the NABU and the SSU.

“I warn that if the actions of the NABU or the SSU will pose a threat to my life or the lives to my assistants and independent journalists, I will act in accordance with article 39 of the Criminal Code (extreme urgency)”, it is outlined in the document.

As it is known, in July 2017, the GPU commenced the proceedings and have begun to conduct a pre-trial investigation on the appeal by Andrii Derkach about the “illegal interference” of the NABU to the election of the US president.
