Russia creating terrorist network in Ukraine
Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko has said that intelligence services of Russia are creating a network to commit terrorist attacks in Ukraine.
"Unfortunately, I should say that Russia is creating a network [to commit] terrorist attacks on our territory. This is one more fact. Society should remember every day that Ukraine is in the state of war," he said at joint briefing with Security Service Chief Vasyl Hrytsak in Kyiv on November 18.
Lutsenko said that on September 16 an officer of the Rivne pretrial detention center Ivan Mamchur was killed. On November 17 a resident of Mariupol Smorodinov was detained when attempting to cross the border in Kharkiv region.
He told investigators that he killed Mamchur under an order of the Federal Security Service of Russia, as Mamchur earlier served in the special forces unit of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) zone.
