Zakarpattia became the target of an attack of Russian special services aimed at complicating relations between Ukraine and its Western partners. This was stated by President Petro Poroshenko on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel in his speech on the occasion of the Day of the National Guard of Ukraine.
"A number of recent events shows that the struggle of real Ukrainian patriots for the right to live in a sovereign, strong, independent country, democratic, European country continues on its entire territory. From Donbas, where a direct foreign aggression is being carried out against our state, and to Zakarpattia, which became the object of an attack of Russian special services aimed at complicating between our state and our Western partners, "he said.
"It's easy to know where the enemy is on the front. It's harder to understand this in the rear because here in Ukraine the enemy camouflages, replicates, mimics, acts disguised, insidiously, disguising as the "fifth column." Poroshenko added.
As it was reported earlier Hennady Moskal, the Governor of Zakarpattia Regional State Administration said that in Zakarpattia on parliamentary election day, the security measures will be implemented just the same way it was in Hungary during the celebration of Carpatho-Ukraine Day.
He also claimed that police detained 32 people with balaclavas, cold arms, bats, gas and nonlethal arms on Carpatho-Ukraine Day.
The voting at the parliamentary election in Hungary will take place on April 8.
