Today investigators of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU), within frames of investigating into a criminal case, issued a summons for September 11 to ex-Chief of Staff Victor Medvedchuk “because of his anti-state activities”.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, SBU acting head Valentyn Nalyvaychenko claimed this to a press conference today.

He also informed that SBU has been carrying out a number of other procedures within frames of the investigation into Medvedchuk’s activities and in order to prevent infringement upon the constitutional regime of Ukraine.

He also added that the investigation will be carried out in line with the Ukrainian legislation.
