"Ukraine has a very powerful, strictly classified and fairly well equipped illegal special service that engages in political assassinations. A certain analog of notorious "Kravchenko’s eagles" and Belarusian "death squads". The positions of the special service are strengthening. One of its tasks was to eliminate me," he said in an interview with Segodnya newspaper published on Friday.

Melnychenko said that the special service comprises former and acting officers of the SBU, military counterintelligence, police and prosecutor’s office. "They are operating in the interests of oligarchs," he said.

"However, my removal is not the only task of the special service. One more is to set up President Viktor Yanukovych. A special operation is being conducted to discredit him and ultimately remove him from power. He has crossed paths with too many people and they will not forgive him. Serious forces in and outside of Ukraine are involved in the orbit of the special operation. Everything is very serious," he said.
