A security officer who guarded the estate of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has committed suicide. The senior sergeant of the National Police, Sergey Galasyuk, “committed suicide on duty near the house of Poroshenko.” The incident occurred on February 23.
In February, the chief military prosecutor of Ukraine, Anatoly Matios, announced the statistics of suicides among the Ukrainian security and military forces. Two to three servicemen commit suicide every week in the zone of military operations in the Donbass. He specified that the suicides among the veterans of the operation were not taken into account: these are only for those who are currently in the war zone.
