The leader of UKROP party was once again detained by officers of the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) and taken to an undisclosed location. Later on, Olena Gitlyanska, SSU spokeswoman, said that the politician was taken to Kyiv to conduct investigations.

Boris Filatov, Gennady Korban’s friend and a contender to the mayor post in Dnepropetrovsk city, commented on the SSU actions.

“Korban was released and taken again to an undisclosed location by unknown persons, right from the court building and in sight of the media, deputies and lowers. It is a full delegitimization of power,” Filatov posted on his Facebook page.
