KIEV, May 27. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) has not so far provided any evidence of the alleged involvement of Kremlin aide Vladislav Surkov in the 2014 Maidan events in Kiev, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin said on Wednesday.
In an interview with the parliament's official newspaper Golos Ukrainy (Voice of Ukraine), Shokin said: "As shown by the commentary of the head of department for special investigations of the Prosecutor General’s Office, this has not been done yet."
Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that according to Ukrainian Security Service data, Surkov, in charge of issues of cooperation with Abkhazia and South Ossetia, had allegedly been involved in the events in Kiev in February 2014 when shooting on city streets left over 100 protesters and law enforcers killed.
Over the past several months, journalists have repeatedly asked SBU chief Valentin Nalyvaychenko to provide evidence confirming that Surkov allegedly led a sniper group on Maidan, the symbol of Ukrainian protests.
Russia has rejected these allegations many times, including at the highest level.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in late February that claims that Kremlin administration officials were involved in events on Maidan were "utter nonsense."
"This is utter nonsense, so far from reality, that you even get surprised where it comes from. Sometimes I later hear that such statements are based on inaccurate data of special services, this is what I am told sometimes," he said.
"I would ask [others] to be more attentive when using data acquired by my Ukrainian colleagues," Putin said.
