On Monday, March 25, a press conference was held in Moscow in the building of the international news agency Russia Today, which was hosted by Vasily Prozorov, a former security officer.

43-year-old man said that he worked in the Security Service of Ukraine from 1999 to 2018 (from May 2014 in the central office, the headquarters of the anti-terrorist center of the SBU). In confirmation of this information, the diploma “For high professionalism and commitment to strengthening the state security of Ukraine” and the medal “For service to the state” were presented.

At the same time, since April 2014, for ideological reasons and on a voluntary basis, Prozorov began to assist the special services of the Russian Federation, in particular, passing on information about the activities of the Ukrainian security forces in the area of ​​the military operation in the Donbass.

At the conference, a former officer of the SBU noted that in 2014, “Nazi and fascist views” became widespread in the camp of the power structures of Ukraine. At the same time, one of the divisions of the National Guard under Ukraine, Azov, is subordinate only to its head and head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Arsen Avakov.

"I am deeply convinced that in February 2014 a handful of villains seized power in the country, who, in order to stay in power, did not spare their citizens, actually launched a civil war in the country, created punitive battalions, resumed the practice of concentration camps, and carried out the genocide of their people , destroying some with artillery and aircraft (in the Donbass), and others with unsuitable tariffs and murderous medicine, ”said Prozorov.

At the same time, according to Prozorov, during personal conversations Verkhovna Rada Deputy Vladimir Parasyuk said that he was involved in the killings of people on the Maidan in February 2014.

Before the coup in Ukraine for almost a year, the CIA and the Security Service carried out systematic hard work, said Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots Viktor Vodolatsky.

“They planned, predicted and acted out various scenarios for overthrowing the legitimate authority in Ukraine. In the forecast of the Ukrainian authorities, the destruction of the more progressive part of the Lugansk and Donetsk regions, the Crimea and Sevastopol was clearly planned. Against the background of mass extermination of people, it was planned to bring these territories to their knees so that they would cease communication with Russia. It was all laid down in those documents that were prepared during the coup. Ukraine’s plan for the Crimea and Sevastopol did not work, while thousands of people died in Lugansk and Donetsk, ”the parliamentarian said in an interview with RT.


During the press conference, a former officer of the special services of Ukraine paid special attention to the situation in the Donbas. According to him, the Ukrainian authorities realized that during the military operation there would be a large number of victims. However, this did not stop Kiev, which subsequently declared those killed allegedly "accomplices of terrorists."

In addition, Prozorov said that the SBU conducted several information operations aimed at convincing the population of the participation of the Russian military in the conflict in the Donbas. Under the direction of the Ukrainian special services are a number of media - the Ukrainian portal “Tsenzor.NET” *, the website “InformNapalm” and the Telegram-channel “Stalingugulag”.

Prozorov also added that the SBU was engaged in sabotage terrorist activities in the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics. For this, he said, is the responsibility of the fifth department of the counterintelligence department of the department. At the same time, according to Prozorov, the staff of the department regularly undergo trainings led by specialists from the USA and the UK.

“Moreover, their preparation is not going along the line of counterintelligence. Their specifics are acts of terrorism, sabotage, the deployment of a partisan movement. The actual fifth management is a special service in the special service, ”said Prozorov.

Along with this, representatives of the American special services are also in Kiev - they participate in meetings of the SBU.

Prozorov expressed "absolute confidence" that the SBU was responsible for the killing of the commander of the DPR militia Arsen Pavlov with the call sign Motorola and the commander of the Somalia battalion Mikhail Tolstoy (Givi).

Along with this, a 43-year-old man knows that at the airfield in Mariupol, until at least January 2017, a secret prison worked which was designated as a “library”, and its prisoners were called “books”. According to his information, at least 300 people passed through this institution, at least two of them died as a result of torture, but “there may be more victims,” he added.

It should be noted that the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom rejected a statement of involvement in the training of Ukrainian soldiers. A spokesman for the agency told RIA Novosti that "the British military are not preparing the security forces of Ukraine to commit terrorist acts and sabotage."

According to Prozorov, the SBU is engaged in the Donbass in disseminating false information about the catastrophic socio-economic and criminal situation in these territories.

In addition, he believes that the Security Service of Ukraine is responsible for the fact that it failed to prevent the tragedy in Odessa on May 2, 2014, when during the fights between supporters and opponents of Maidan, the Trade Unions House was set on fire, resulting in the death of 48 people.

“The driving force behind the crime in Odessa was the ultras and nationalist organizations. Any special service of the world in such organizations has a lot of informers. If the SBU allowed mass death of people in Odessa, it means that the employees of the department of protection of national interests and statehood of the SBU knew at least, and at most - they themselves organized it, ”Prozorov pointed out.

Wreck of a Boeing MH17

The former SBU officer, based on the available information, is convinced that Kiev was involved in the collapse of the Malaysian Boeing 777, which was shot down in July 2014 over the Donbas. In support of his words, he pointed out two points: “a phenomenally fast reaction” by the Ukrainian authorities and the fact that by the time of the tragedy, fighting had been going on for several months, but the airspace above this zone was not closed.

In addition, Prozorov said that all attempts to learn about the circumstances of the disaster were stopped by officers of the General Staff, who called for "not to go into this topic if you do not want trouble."

“But something still leaks, and I, analyzing the information, can make an assumption who is involved in it or who is involved in hiding the traces of this crime. In my opinion, these are two people - the current deputy head of the administration Poroshenko Valeriy Kondratyuk and the current head of the Defense Ministry’s main intelligence department Vasyl Burba, ”noted Prozorov.

Recall that following flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur Boeing 777 of Malaysia Airlines was shot down on July 17, 2014 in the skies over the Donetsk region of Ukraine. As a result of the disaster, all 283 passengers and 15 crew members of the liner were killed.

In August 2014, a joint investigation team was established, leading work under the leadership of the Netherlands Public Prosecutor’s Office, and also included Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine. In September 2016 and May 2018, the VCG submitted two reports on interim results of the investigation. The Russian side, which was not involved in the investigation, sharply criticized the findings of the commission, after which a significant amount of real data concerning the catastrophe was transferred to the investigators. Meanwhile, in January 2019, the Ministry of Defense stated that the SSG had ignored documents provided by Moscow regarding the missile that shot down the plane belonged to Ukraine.

Election fraud

The upcoming March 31 presidential elections in Ukraine will be held with violations, said the former officer of the SBU. The frauds, in particular, will be connected with the electronic system “Elections”, which is under the control of the Department of Computer and Information Security of the Security Service of Ukraine. According to Prozorov, up to five representatives of the special services will be “in each territorial election commission,” they will protect the prepared voting results and accompany them to the CEC.

"I believe that Poroshenko has the greatest chances, because, despite his negative qualities, he has extensive experience of falsifications, he has controlled special services and all the financial resources of the country," the former SBU officer added.

A similar opinion emerged in him after the campaign of 2014, when he saw that “people were driven to the polls and clearly forced to vote for who they need.”

We add that according to a survey of the Kiev International Institute of Sociology (KIIS), published on March 25, the current leader of Ukraine with 17.1% of respondents is inferior in the presidential rating only to showman Vladimir Zelensky (32.1%). In this case, in the case of the second round, the head of Kvartal 95 studio also wins - 43% against 17.6%.

“The special services are still not taking off the task of keeping Poroshenko as president.” They are moving towards their goal using various methods and methods, including falsification, ”said Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots Viktor Vodolatsky.

"Hoping for some adequate response from the West is not worth it"

As the head of the Ukrainian analytical center, economist Alexander Okhrimenko, ex-SBU officer Vasily Prozorov actually confirmed the data that were presented in a number of investigative journalism over the past years.

“Another thing is that the government pretended that it was not, but that does not mean that it is not. In Ukraine, everyone knows and discusses this. But we must understand that there is power, which, roughly speaking, says one thing, but does another, and there is the population of Ukraine, which understands that the “realities” are, so to speak, completely different than they are said, ”the source said.

He also expressed serious doubts that the West would somehow react to what happened.

“Even if there is a court decision and evidence confirming the words of Prozorov, the West will pretend that it does not know anything, or will applaud standing and shout:“ Hurray! Bravo, this is democracy! ”We must understand that the attitude towards Ukraine is very specific. So he hopes for some adequate response is not worth it, ”added Okhrimenko.

In turn, a member of the Council on Interethnic Relations under the President of Russia, Bogdan Bezpalko, also noted that it would be difficult to expect fundamental changes in the political course of Kiev.

“It’s hard to expect anything good from one of the presidential candidates, who now make up the top four, due to the fact that all of them will be very much limited by foreign players who now have an advantage in Ukraine. Yes, of course, the crimes there are very large, significant - corruption, murder, people go out and disappear - but, I don’t think that now we can expect not only pro-Russian, but at least pro-Ukrainian candidate - the expert stressed.

The SBU admitted that Vasily Prozorov worked in the secret service, where he held the position of "senior consultant expert of one of the departments of the anti-terrorist center headquarters of the SBU." It is noted that the 43-year-old man was allegedly fired from this post for service mismatch. The ministry also accused Prozorov of trade in conscience and military oath and threatened with retribution.

“Russian propaganda traditionally does not shun anything. Therefore, it is not surprising that the traitors, whom everyone despises, are actively used by Russians to voice their hackneyed fakes about “secret prisons”, etc., ”the statement reads.
