The Verhovna Rada has empowered Security service of Ukraine (SSU) to investigate cybercrimes.
A majority of deputies of Verhovna Rada has voted for the law "About Changes in the Code of Criminal Procedure of Ukraine".
According to law, the pre-judicial investigation on the crimes related to "Production with the purpose of selling and selling the programs or the means intended for illegal penetration into computers, computer systems, networks or disruption of their functioning», will be carried out by the inspectors of Ukraine's Security Service.
In case these crimes are committed by juvenile offender, the pre-judicial investigation will be carried out by inspectors of Ministry of Internal Affairs. Such change in investigative jurisdiction is proved and successfully approved in other countries.
The Necessity of participation of Special Services in fighting cybercrime is proved also by the international experience. These changes will allow Security Service of Ukraine to solve the tasks on National Security more efficiently
