Some of the six Russian citizens, who got detained in Kyiv earlier today, served with the Russian intelligence. Oleg Slobodyan, the spokesman of the State Border Guard Service, said that in his commentary for 112 Ukraine TV channel.
‘At least two of them served with the Russian military, the GRU. That was even before the war; but we of all people do know – there’s no such thing like a ‘former scout’, Slobodyan said.
According to him, the law enforcers are sorting out the actual goal of their trip to Ukraine.
‘They could flee from prosecution, as criminals hunted down by some financial authorities back in Russia. That’s just a presumption, we’ll figure it all out later. Some of them are at the airport, and we’re going to decide their fate,’ Slobodyan said.
Earlier today, six Russian citizens were detained at the two airports in Kyiv – Boryspil International and Zhuliany. The men, all of which arrived from Minsk, tried to cross the Ukrainian border, but were busted by the Security Service of Ukraine and the State Border Service.
