“Your Children Will Be Jailed”: SBU Threatens LPR Military Personnel If They Refuse to Become an Informant November 12, 2016 News Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard 15:53:25 12/11/2016 Life.ru Employees of the Security Services of Ukraine reach out to LPR soldiers and ordinary civilians of the Republic, whose children live or study on the territory of Ukraine, and blackmail them for recruitment purposes. This was reported in the Ministry of State Security of the Republic. “The Kiev regime moved to the frontline in the field of state terrorism. The special services’ use of family members of servicemen of the Lugansk People’s Republic as hostages in order, via blackmail and physical threats of reprisal, to turn them into confidential informants, became a monstrous crime against human rights,” said the Ministry of State Security of the LPR. As was reported, the soldiers of the militia, whose children became “hostages” of the Ukrainian Security Services, addressed the Ministry. According to the data of the LPR Ministry of State Security, employees of the Security Services of Ukraine received the contact details of parents and sent letters with an offer to work for the Security Services. In case of refusal, the Special Services promises to put children in jail, place them in an orphanage, expel them from University, and give them a lot of other problems. “The SBU called me from the phone of my daughter, they asked me to hand over the documentation that I work with. They said that all communication will be through her. When they received no information, they called me and said that my daughter will not be able to pass her exams,” said the military servicewoman I. Plotnikova, describing the SBU’s threats.
