The letter has become a news story on Russian television and on CNN iReport. It's written on paper marked “Ministry of Justice Sweden” and is addressed to Oleksiy Pokotylo, “Head Department for National Security and Defense Affairs” in Ukraine.

The letter is signed by Tora Holst, chief prosecutor at the International Public Prosecution Office in Stockholm and is an answer to what seems to be a Ukrainian request to the Swedish Minister for Justice, Morgan Johansson.
