SBU turns over more than 100 names of Serbs fighting with Donbas occupations forces – Hrytsak
Ukraine's SBU Security Service has passed on a list of 23 additional Serb nationals who are participating in military actions in eastern Ukraine on behalf of illegal armed formations. Belgrade has not yet responded, said SBU chief Vasyl Hrytsak.
"As for the Serbs, starting from October 2017 we have handed over the names of 103 Serbs, who are participating in the military conflict in eastern Ukraine," Hrytsak said in Kyiv on Thursday. He added that the names of 23 Serbs (included in the list of 103 persons) are serving under the Russian private military company Wagner.
"Unfortunately, we have not received any official reaction from the Serb side, but I would like to point out that one of the 103 Serbs in 2004-2005 recruited Ukrainians to carry out terrorist acts in European Union member state. We have given his surname to Serb authorities," the SBU chief said.
Hrytsak said in October 2017 that around 300 Serbs were serving in the Wagner private army and that his agency has a lot of information about each of them.
