Nalyvaichenko said that law enforcement officers had documented proof of their illegal activities in Ukraine.

"As part of these proceedings we have titles, last names, copies of passports, dates of their entry and exit, which connections they used, in which public premises they stayed, and how President Putin's adviser Surkov coordinated them in Kyiv ...," he said.

Nalyvaichenko also noted that three groups of the Russian FSB employees came to Kyiv in December 2013 and February 2014 and organized and planned the crack downs of the Euromaidan activists.

In addition, he stressed that a large number of law enforcement officers and SBU staff turned out to be traitors and worked for foreign intelligence services.
