The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) liquidated a virus-infected program on the server of the Central Election Commission (CEC) that was supposed to destroy the results of the presidential elections in Ukraine, SBU chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko told reporters on Friday, Ukrinform reports.

"Yesterday we destroyed an infected program on the CEC server. On May 25 this virus should have destroyed the election results,"- Nalyvaichenko said.

According to him, the program was offered to the Central Election Commission by Azarov's government.

"The previous government proposed this program to the CEC illegally," he said.

The SBU chief added that the software is now replaced, hence "there is confidence that the CEC server is protected."
