Yulia Miroshnikova, the spouse of Stanislav Yezhov, assistant to the Ukraine’s prime minister, has called the arrest of her husband nonsense.
“I think this is nonsense and a kind of surrealism. I’d like not to talk about this anymore,” she said in response to journalists’ request to comment on the actions of Ukraine’s Security Council and the Ukrainian mass media reports on the situation.
Earlier, the press office of the Security Council of Ukraine reported that Yezhov was allegedly recruited by the Russian intelligence during his two-year-long business trip to U.S.
“Officers of the Security Council of Ukraine have recorded that the government official collected information on the activity of the government agencies with the help of special equipment at the request of his Russian patrons. The intruder transferred the collected data via electronic communication channels,” the press office of the Security Council reported.
According to the representative of the Security Council who led the detention operation, they have collected enough proofs of the suspect’s spying.
The Ukrainian press has found out that Yezhov’s wife is a citizen of Russia, graduated from Saint Petersburg University and works at the Kiev-based Donbass Fuel and Energy Company. The couple has a daughter of preschool age.
