The personnel of Security Service of Ukraine detained the individual who attempted on one of the public activists in Kherson. The contractor of the attempt and number of other terrorist attacks on the territory of Ukraine is Russia’s FSB, reports the press office of the Ukrainian intelligence services.
‘Detectives of SBU established that the intelligence of the country aggressor planned to commit a number of terrorist acts on the territory of Ukraine aimed at all known public activists to destabilize the social-political situation in Ukraine. To do so, they recruited the citizen of Ukraine who agreed to commit misdemeanors for reward. In may 2018, Ukrainian law enforcement officers managed to prevent the murder of one of the heads of a regional political organization in Kherson. Ukrainian law enforcement bodies monitored the next steps of the perpetrator within the framework of an investigation experiment, in order to confirm the involvement of the Russian Federation,’ reads the message of SBU.
The investigation established that the offender received another mission right after the attempt. Another victim had to be the leader of Kherson public organization.
‘As a result of the special operation, the law enforcement officers detained the attacker in Kyiv during preparation for an offense. Currently, the detainee is suspected of having committed offenses provided by part 2 of Art 15, part 2 of Art 258, part 1 of Art 14 and part 1 of Art 263 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine and a preventive measure in the view of detention for two months was elected for him,’ SBU reported.
