Massive terrorist attacks were planned to be conducted in Kyiv, shootings at the central part of the city from mortars in particular, as Vasyl Hrytsak, the Head of the Security Service of Ukraine, claimed during the briefing. 

He said that terrorists planned to conduct massive attacks in Kyiv and reach the highest possible death toll to trigger civil disturbance and prove the fact that there is a “civil war” going on in Ukraine.

“Nobody really cares about civilians. The terrorists wanted lots of dead bodies and blood; it was about thousands of people. As their leaders from the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic and from Moscow said, there must be a lot of blood and a chaos, so that people come out on the streets, soldiers come back from ATO (Donbas conflict zone, -ed.) and go towards Kyiv to show that there is a civil war in Ukraine,” Hrytsak said.
