Russia is trying to use ethnic groups living in Ukraine to promote national autonomies, head of the SBU Security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Hrytsak said at a security conference in Kyiv March 17, according to an UNIAN correspondent

"The Russian side does not abandon the idea of Ukraine's federalization and tries to use ethnic factors in the west and southwest of Ukraine to disseminate sentiments regarding autonomies," Hrytsak said.

In his words, ethnic groups of Hungarians, Bulgarians, Gagauzians, and Rusyns are now in the focus of Russian special services.

At the same time, Hrytsak assured that the SBU is making efforts to confront such type of aggression.
