Ukrainian intelligence agency denies eastern Ukraine has been seized

Ukraine: The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) insisted Tuesday that its building in the eastern region of Donetsk has not been seized, contrary to reports of a takeover.

SBU spokeswoman Maryna Ostapenko said at a briefing on Tuesday “As far as I know, there was no seizure there.”

The SBU building in the city of Kramatorsk “is a small building,” she said. “To say that it has been seized is an overstatement. People there walk in and out.”
