Vasyl Grytsak, the Head of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) held the briefing on the details of the detention of Volodymyr Ruban, the Leader of Center of POW Release 'Officer Corps'. He claimed that the special service succeeded to prevent the terrorist actions that could hurt thousands of the citizens and the particular politicians as 112 Ukraine reported.
'He organized the illegal transfer of the large shipment of the firearms and other ordnance. I want to draw the attention to the fact that the packing list dated June 06, 2016, military base 08819 was found in the box with the grenades. According to our data, it is the military base of the first army corps of Donetsk People's Republic'.
Also, Grytsak reported that Ruban in collusion with Zakharchenko and Tymofeev, the leaders of the DPR prepared the terrorist actions in the downtown of Kyiv.
'We found adequate evidence that Ruban, acting by the previous concert with Zakharchenko and Tymofeev, the leaders of the DPR and other persons, planned the particular actions that aim for the preparation of the number of the terrorist actions in the downtown of Kyiv'.
Moreover, the SBU is sure that 'the curators from Moscow' are involved in the preparation of the terrorist actions in Ukraine with the participation of detained Ruban.
'Do you believe that Zakharchenko and Tymofeev took responsibility, provided Ruban with such amount of the weaponry to make the terrorist attacks in Kyiv and the curators from Moscow did not know about this? That they did not authorize this?', Grytsak claimed.
Grytsak also listed the weaponry confiscated from Ruban.
As we reported Ruban was detained on March 8 at the Ukrainian checkpoint at the demarcation line of Donbas Conflict zone.
