FSB has tried to make the detained Ukrainians in Crimea to cooperate, and then blamed for subversive activities. Crimea.SOS Civil initiative Coordinator Tamila Tasheva stated this in the air of 112 Ukraine TV Channel.
"Two of them - Oleksiy Bessarabov, Dmytro Shtybliko, they were published in The Black Sea Security journal. According to our information, they were always put under pressure. FSB tried to make them cooperate, and after that decided to blame of the sabotage activities", said Tasheva.
She also expressed the view that this is a provocation on the eve of the UN General Assembly, which will consider the Crimean issue.
"On the one hand, it’s an attempt to intimidate, but it's another case of so-called Ukrainian saboteurs. We remember Panov’s case that was just before the G8 meeting. Now we see these events occur immediately after the US elections and before the meeting of the UN General Assembly, where they will consider a resolution on Crimea and Crimean Tatars. So this is just another accusing Ukrainians of not agreeing with the occupation of the Crimea", Tasheva said.
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".
Leninsky District Court of Sevastopol ruled the decision to arrest three “Ukrainian saboteurs” for two months, who supposedly prepared terror attacks in the Crimea.
Earlier the agency reported names of the three detainees – Oleksiy Bessarabov, Dmytro Shtyblikov, Volodymyr Dudko.
