Russia media erroneously described inscriptions on the light boxes

Head of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) Valentyn Nalyvajchenko says the use of light boxes by the Svoboda public organization bearing the words “Ukrainian Division Halychyna, ZIK reported. They defended Ukraine” breaks no law. No international laws have been broken by Ukraine in doing this, UNIAN quotes the chief spy as saying to journalists Apr. 27.

According to Nalyvajchenko, the light boxes were ordered by Svoboda, and the Lviv city council gave its permission in late 2008 to install them.

“As no international laws have been violated by Ukraine, the service did not interfere. All the hubbub arose after Russia media erroneously described what was written on the light boxes. There were no SS symbols or any calls on the boxes,” V. Nalyvajchenko stressed.
