In late May the employees of the State Border Service of Ukraine detained on the Ukrainian-Polish border a 25-year-old French citizen, who was carrying arms and explosives in his car, including three grenade launchers, more than 100 kilograms of explosives, a hundred detonators, and several Kalashnikov rifles. This is reported by "RIA Novosti" with reference to the press service of State Border Service of Ukraine.
"I can say that yes, it happened on Ukrainian border, but it is within the competence of the Security Service of Ukraine", - the ministry said.
According to the M6 television channel, the man planned to smuggle weapons into France allegedly to commit acts of terrorism, writes Le Figaro.
It is also reported that the man is still in custody in Ukraine waiting for a possible request for extradition.
