MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. Ukrainian hacktivists from Cyber Berkut, a group taking name from Ukraine’s special police force, put on the Web on Thursday materials, which they say prove involvement of the Ukrainian Security Service in the recent murder of opposition journalist Oles Buzina.

"We, Cyber Berkut, make available to the public materials confirming that physical liquidation of public and political activists in opposition to the Kiev junta, was sanctioned by the Ukrainian Security Service, supervised by Kharkiv political elites, while the very group of ‘assassins of free Ukraine’ territorially belongs to Kharkiv nationalist groups," runs a report on Cyber Berkut’s website.

Hacktivists say about a week ago they hacked a mail box of the acting deputy head of the Kharkiv region’s state administration, Vyacheslav Abbakumv, getting access to his service documents as well as his correspondence with an unidentified leader of a neo-Nazi group from the Kharkiv region.

"This correspondence confirms, though indirectly, the fact that the liquidation of opposition forces in Ukraine was supervised by representatives of the government authorities," Cyber Berkut said.

They posted extracts from correspondence and documents obtained from the mail box.

Opposition journalist Oles Buzina was killed near his home in Kiev on April 16. Once chief editor of the Segodnya newspaper, Buzina quit his post in March due to censorship. The Ukrainian Interior Ministry sees his professional activity as the main motive behind the murder.
