An investigation of the Viktor Yushchenko's poisoning case is making progress, Ukrainian National Security and Defense Secretary Pyotr Poroshenko said live on television Monday.

Poroshenko refused to divulge any details in the interests of investigation.

"Ukraine's Security Service, headed by Alexander Turchinov, bears direct responsibility investigating this case," Poroshenko said, RIA Novosty reported. He added that only the service had the right to release any information about it.

In September 2004, Yushchenko was hospitalized in an Austrian clinic suffering the symptoms similar to poisoning. His campaign manager Alexander Zinchenko later confirmed that Yushchenko had been poisoned. Foreign doctors discovered concentrations of the dioxin 2,3,7,8-TCDD in his blood that were 6,000 times higher than normal.
