Sternenko summoned to SBU to present suspicions
Activist Sergei Sternenko said he was summoned for questioning by the Ukrainian security services to raise suspicions.
He wrote about it on Facebook.
“I have received a message about the suspicion of self-defense.
Already officially. Witness the new call to the SBU that I received today. The appeal indicates that, as a witness, I was called to deliver a notice of suspicion on June 9 at 10 am, “wrote Sternenko.
He noted that he had already sent an answer to the investigator that he could not appear for questioning for objective reasons, since the call had been received 2 days before the date on which they had called, and the CCP to art. 135 indicates that there should be a minimum of 3 days.
“During such a period (also taking into account tomorrow’s day off), I have no time to prepare to serve suspicion and attract defenders. Therefore, if they need me to appear , that they are calling on another date so that I can properly exercise my right to defense “, – said the activist.
He added that suspicion had been established for him under s. 115 – intentional homicide.
As reported, on May 14, activist Sergei Sternenko announced that he would be called to the SBU on Monday May 18 to report his suspicions.
Sternenko clarified that the SBU investigator in the appeal had not indicated what type of investigative and procedural actions he had been called for.
Earlier, the WBC fan club movement Ultras Dynamo issued a statement supporting Sternenko and warned of a mobilization due to the possible detention of the former head of the right sector of Odessa.
On May 6, six other movements of Ukrainian supporters released their statements on the situation surrounding Sternenko’s possible conclusion: Ultras from Volyn, Zaporizhzhya Metallurg and others. The same day, in 9 cities of Ukraine, the rally “Hands off Sternenko – I have the right to defense” took place.
