The Batkivschyna Party says its Facebook page was used for a provocation against its team.

The party wrote this on its Facebook page, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"The Secretariat of the Batkivschyna Party reports that the Facebook page of our political force was used for a provocation against our team. The official website of the Batkivschyna Party did not publish any position of our team regarding the publication in The New York Times. This provocation shows once again: there are no limits of technologies used against Batkivschyna by our opponents!" reads the statement.

The statement reads that the official position of the party is the following: Ukraine and state enterprises could not have supplied anything to North Korea in violation of international sanctions, especially military goods.

However, there is no statement on the matter on the website of the Batkivschyna Party.

On August 14, there appeared a posting on Batkivschyna's Facebook page. It said Ukraine would face sanctions if the information on transfer of rocket technologies to North Korea had been conformed.

It said the situation was a consequence of lack of professionalism and crimes of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.

A similar statement was posted on the page of Yuliya Tymoshenko.

The statements have been removed from the Facebook pages.

The New York Times published opinion of some experts about possible involvement of the Ukrainian state enterprise in the development of rocket technologies in North Korea.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the state enterprise Yuzhny Machine-Building Plant named after A.M. Makarov Production Association (YUZHMASH, Dnipro) denies any involvement in the development of rocket technologies in North Korea.

National Security and Defense Council Secretary (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov says Ukraine has not supplied weapons or military technologies to North Korea.
