Former Ukrainian Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko's blog on Ukrayinska Pravda has been hacked, the website said on 24 November, adding that the most recent entry, in which Lutsenko warned of possible casualties as a result of pro-EU protests in central Kiev, was fake.

"Information that was posted on Lutsenko's behalf is fake. The blog has been hacked. We apologize to readers and to Lutsenko," Ukrayinska Pravda said in a message posted on Lutsenko's blog after it removed the original text.

Lutsenko's press secretary Larysa Sarhan confirmed this on Twitter (http://tinyurl.com/o9tehu9)"Yuriy Lutsenko's blog on Ukrayinska Pravda has been hacked! Do not react to today's most recent entry!" she tweeted at 1514 gmt.
