Over 200 terrorist attacks that took place in Ukraine last year were organized by Russian citizens, trained in Rostov and Belgorod regions of Russia. The Head of the Ukrainian state said this during solemn meeting, timed to the 24th anniversary of the SBU, Ukraine’s Security Service.
“They planned terrorist attacks in Kyiv, Odesa, Kharkiv, Lviv and other cities, aiming Ukrainian civilians. They are the key element of the hybrid war against our country”, Poroshenko said.
“The SBU effectively disarms and detains such terrorists, provides effective information campaign, showing the society compelling evidence of its effective work. The Ukrainian people has a lot to be grateful for, thanks to SBU’s efforts”, the President said. He bestowed the rank of Army General upon SBU Head Vasyl Grytsak.
