The SVRU called on the agency to cancel the message, noting that the media did not give any comments.
Earlier, a criminal case was initiated against the deputy head of foreign intelligence of Ukraine, Sergey Semochko, under the article of the State Treasurer after the facts about his illegal enrichment appeared.
