Zelenskyy appoints SBU deputy chief

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has appointed Dmytro Neskoromnyy deputy head of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), his decree No 473 reads.

Neskoromnyy made his career in the SBU's "K" (counterintelligence) department, of which he was the deputy head. He was involved in the detention of the so-called "diamond prosecutors". The new head of the "K" department, Pavlo Demchyna, who replaced Viktor Trepak, dismissed Neskoromnyy on 27 February 2017.

The "K" department is headed by Zelenskyy's long-time friend Ivan Bakanov, who is also the de facto chief of the SBU. Recently, the president appointed Anatoliy Kalyuzhnyak, who must have been vetted out, the first deputy head of the SBU.
