Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Alpha Group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kiev territorial unit of Group "A" was converted into Service "C" of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) in 1992.[5] Nevertheless, it has continued to be informally called "Alpha". According to some reports, the unit might have been involved in the deadly use of live ammunition against the opposition during the 2014 uprising against President Viktor Yanukovych in Kiev.[67]

The last footnote is to an article in Ukrainian from 20 February, which adds the details that the snipers lived on the premises of Cabinet, and another evidence linking them to the SBU is that the SUV with the identified registration number used to park regularly in front of the Alpha unit HQ.
