Law enforcement collapses in Ukraine

July 21, 2022

Amid the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine, the Kiev regime executed a crackdown on top security officials.

The President of Ukraine Zelensky dismissed the head of the country’s Security Service (SBU) Ivan Bakanov for non-fulfillment of duties that entailed human casualties. Ukrainian Prosecutor General Irina Venediktova was also dismissed from her post.

Zelensky accused officials of betrayal as there is a large number of cases of treason and collaboration with Russian special services in Ukrainian law enforcement agencies. 651 criminal cases have already been launched.

The trigger for the personnel sweep was likely the recent strike of Russian missiles at the Officers’ House in the city of Vinnytsia, at a time Ukrainian and foreign military officials held negotiations there. As a result of the strike, a large group of high-ranking officers of the Ukrainian Air Force were destroyed. Apparently, the strike led to casualties among the foreign officers, and Kiev was forced by its western partners to punish top security officials who were responsible for the leak of information. This led to the resignation of the head of the SBU.
