Security Service of Ukraine released snippets of conversations with the detained on suspicion of preparing terrorist attacks during the Euro 2016 French citizen and a citizen of Ukraine, who discussed, in particular, the preparation of "an operation" and the issue of the transfer of explosives on YouTube on Wednesday.
It is noted that the Frenchman spoke negatively about immigrants in France, the spread of Islam and world globalization. He also expressed the desire to commit a series of terrorist attacks in protest.
"The suspect arrived in Ukraine and tested the weapons and explosives under the Ukrainian Security Service in April 2016 ", reads the message.
The attacker and his allies planned to use weapons and explosives for simultaneous blasting of bridges and highway infrastructures in the different regions of France. State’s tax administration office, mosque, synagogue and other agencies that take part in the preparation on Euro 2016 could become the next targets for attacks.
The terrorist tried to find people who could have transferred the weapons and explosives through Ukrainian border for a fee of €3 000. Being unable to find a carrier, he decided to do this himself.
