Representatives of the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation illegally detained a junior sergeant of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine on the administrative border with the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. This was reported by the military counterintelligence service of Ukraine’s Security Service, the press service of the department informs.
"Representatives of the Russian special services, using violence and torture, tried to force the Ukrainian to confess to the allegedly deliberate intersection of the administrative border with the peninsula," the message reads.
It was also stated that FSB's representatives tried to pressure him in private cooperation in order to obtain information on the combat duty of units of Ukraine’s State Border Guard Service.
The Security Service of Ukraine has checked the information on the circumstances of the illegal detention of the border guard and his contacts with Russia’s FSB.
As we reported earlier, on April 16, FSB detained one Ukrainian citizen and accused him of espionage.
