“Russian security agencies are trying to drag Ukrainian citizens into unlawful activity through artificially created incriminating situations. They use family connections to draw our citizens out, first of all, the participants of the Donbas conflict, to their territory for organizing such provocations,” the Head of the SBU Vasyl Hrytsak said.
Due to this, the SBU advises Ukrainians to cancel trips to Russia, as the Russian security agencies will start an aimed hunt against them.
“The Security Service of Ukraine emphasizes that the FSB of Russian Federation is hunting our citizens on Russian territory and traveling to the aggressor-country is not the best option now,” the statement says.
Previously media reported that Oleh Nehoda, Ukrainian participant of Donbas conflict, was detained in Moscow. He went to visit his sister in Saratov at the end of December 2017.
