Donetsk, Dec 3 - DAN. Units of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) have stepped up telephone tapping in the Kiev-controlled part of Donbass, the Donetsk People’s Republic People’s Militia reported on Tuesday.

“SBU technical units are monitoring telephone conversations in Dzerzhinsk, Avdeyevka and Krasnogorovka,” the report said. “If the conversation is found to be anti-government or loyal to the People’s Republics, the SBU pinpoints the subscriber’s address which is visited by a response group for investigation.”

Some ten civilians have already been detained. In this connection, the DPR militia urged Ukrainian residents to stay cautious.*jk
