SSCIP Not Verifying State-Run Company Involved into ‘Falsifying Riaboshapka Declaration’
The State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine (SSCIP) does not consider it necessary to conduct verification of the state-run company Ukrainian Special Systems (USS), although it was allegedly involved into falsification of Ruslan Riaboshapka declaration. The SSCIP Chief Leonid Yevdochenko told this to European Pravda on August 31 night.
"No verification was made. Why should we do it?" he said.
"I never received this allegation officially," Yevdochenko added.
In fact, the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption (NAZK) sent the SSCIP the official notification that the digital key used to upload fake Riaboshapka’s declaration was associated with the USS.
Yevdochenko also denied that such verification was within the competence of the SSCIP, although the Law on Digital Signature makes it clear that it is the SSCIP to supervise these matters. The state-run company USS is a subsidiary of the SSCIP.
European Pravda informed earlier that the fake e-declaration of the NAZK member Ruslan Riaboshapka was uploaded to the system showing that he had received ₴20 million from a fictional private company.
Later on, the system developers stressed that the system had not been hacked, as a test key had been used. According to the NAZK technical staff, the digital signature used to sign fake declaration of Riaboshapka was a ‘test one’ certified by the state-run company Ukrainian Special Systems.
