Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine (HUR) denies that their officers were arrested in Sevastopol. This was stated by the agency.
“The Russian Federal Security Service’s (FSB) statements about HUR officers detainment is another fake”. HUR denies Russia’s FSB’s statements about the alleged HUR workers in Sevastopol, the message says.
This statement’s purpose is to hide Russia’s repressions against peninsula inhabitants and to discredit Ukraine in the eyes of the international community, Ukraine’s intelligence says.
Earlier it was reported that the FSB detained another so-called "Ukrainian saboteurs" who allegedly were planning sabotage on strategic sites of the occupied Crimea in Sevastopol on November 9. The detainees are allegedly members of the "terrorist group of the Ukraine’s Defense Ministry Intelligence Service".
