KIEV, May 18. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Security Service has started "pre-trial investigation into financing of miners’ protest actions in Kiev from 22 to 24 April by representatives of Ukraine’s private coal-mining companies," Verkhovna Rada deputy Mustafa Nayem wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.
Nayem received a letter from Ukraine’s Security Service which cites his articles "Rinat Akhmetov Blackmails the State" and "Rinat Akhmetov’s Krepost [Fortress]: Names and Details" published in the Ukrainian Pravda daily. Akhmetov is suspected of "committing deliberate actions aimed at changing Ukraine’s state borders or publicly calling for or distributing materials calling for such actions."
"Ukraine’s Security Service has requested the Krepost plan of Rinat Akhmetov’s company DTEK. I will hand all the materials in the nearest future," Nayem said.
On April 24, Nayem wrote in his blog that Akhmetov’s DTEK company has adopted the Krepost plan aimed at triggering a "social explosion" in Ukraine. Akhmetov can face up to three years in prison, if found guilty.
