The Federal Security Service (FSB) and Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the Russian Federation should be recognized as the terrorist organizations as Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Secretary Olexandr Turchynov reported on Facebook.
“The criminal actions provide the grounds to recognize the special services of the Russian Federation, particularly FSB and GRU, as the terrorist organization and Russia as the state, which spread terrorism in the world,” Turchynov said.
He reminded that the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine provided evidence of the participation of Russia in the organization of the terrorist actions in the territory of Ukraine.
“According to the provided evidence, the responsibility for the organization of the terror and diversions in the territory of Ukraine is held by FSB Director, General Aleksandr Bortnikov, Head of FSB Counterintelligence Department, General Dmitry Minaev and Head of GRU Vice Admiral Igor Kostyukov,” Turchynov added.
He emphasized that similar crimes of the Russian special services were exposed outside Ukraine, particularly, the use of the toxic substances in the territory of the UK.
