Within the initiated criminal proceedings, SBU conducted a complex of operational search actions. SBU employees established, that two Poland citizens, involved in the case, were members of the right-wing organization “Falange”. Members of the above organization participated in combat operations on Donbas territory, with the militants of “LNR” and “DNR”. Ukrainian law enforcement identified the criminals with the help of security cameras, established the mobile phones, through which they coordinated their actions, as well as gas station, where they bought petrol for arson, prior to crossing the Ukrainian border. During the pre-trial investigation, the SBU found out that the arson was organized by a third criminal – a member of the right-wing organization in Poland.
