Interior Minister of Ukraine Yuri Lutsenko claims that the Sate Guard Service (SGS) banned him to enter the Presidential Secretariat.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Yuri Lutsenko said this to journalists in the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday.

“Today SGS bans the Interior Minister to enter the territory of the Presidential Secretariat”, Yuri Lutsenko said.

At the same time, the Minister did not specify when exactly the entry ban was introduced.

“I faced it at the last session of the National Security and Defense Council, when my car was not let in – but I’m free from vanity, I went on foot, and it appeared that a special permit of the superintendent is necessary for me to enter the Secretariat, to take part in the NSDC session. I asked them whether a personal invitation from the President is not cooler that the instruction of Mr.Geletey [State Guard Service chief - UNIAN]? In 15 minutes it appeared that I may enter and take part in the NSDC session”, Yuri Lutsenko said.
