The National Security Agency has suspended two employees because of the Onishchenko scandal
Two employees of the National Security Agency (NSA), who are part of the Strategic Cooperation Department, have been suspended due to the case of the Ukrainian businessman Oleksandr Onishchenko, published Focus.
After the director of ANB, Viktor Dimovski, referred to the Parliament regarding the case, said in a statement to journalists that an official did not carry out the necessary international consultation with NATO partners before giving consent that there is no security risk to grant citizenship to Onishchenko.
While waiting for the director to refer to the closed government session, the prime minister Dimitar Kovacevski stated that several institutions gave the green light for the citizenship of the pro-Russian Ukrainian businessman, but, as he added, after the new situation, they will request additional information.
The President Stevo Pendarovski, on the other hand, considered that it was a scandal, because, according to him, the information that Onishchenko is on the black list of the USA should not be specially provided, since it is publicly published information.
