Valentova said Czech diplomacy had been informed about the man's detention by the Ukrainian security service. "We are in contact with the person and his family," she said.

Valentova said the Czech man should not leave Ukraine for a period of two months and he should cooperate with the authorities dealing with his case.

According to, Vokal's arrest in Ukraine is linked to his current activities in the security field, in which he keeps working although prosecution has been launched against him in the Czech Republic.

He is also suspected of having helped delay a police crackdown on suspected blackmailers and securing a Czech residence permit for an underworld boss's girlfriend. wrote that together with Vokal, the Ukrainian police detained a Czech diplomat, who, however, was subsequently released after producing his diplomatic passport.

Valentova did not confirm the information about the detention of a diplomat. She said the ministry has no such information.
