Zik: Czech Republic launches project in Lviv to digitalize SBU archives

Zik: Czech Republic launches project in Lviv to digitalize SBU archives. “SBU Lviv branch director Oleksandr Tkachuk said the digitalized archives will help researchers and public to get acquainted with NKVD and KGB practices. Under the law On Access to Communist Regime Archives, many of the documents will become available in Ukraine. However, Russia still keeps the bulk of KGB archives giving them a classified status, he said.” I believe in this case that SBU stands for the Security Service of Ukraine.
