Bakanov noted that the first terrorist act was prevented by the SBU in April 2020 when the law enforcers exposed the bomber who earlier planted the explosive device near the shopping mall in Kharkiv. Besides, in June, the law enforcers detained a former military who tried to blew up the hospital in Severodonetsk and in July, a militant of the so-called Luhansk People’s Republic, tried to blew up the tanks with ammonia.

According to Bakanov, in 2020, the courts delivered 28 sentences for terrorism and 16 for the creation of the terrorist groups and organizations according to the materials of the SBU.

“In general, 254 foreigners are banned from the entrance to Ukraine as they are involved in the terrorism and extremist organizations,” Bakanov added.
