FSB detains SBU agent sent to Crimea for sabotage purposes
The Federal Security Service (FSB) has prevented acts of sabotage against Crimean infrastructure and crucial utilities and detained an agent of the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU), a spokesman for the FSB Public Relations Center told Interfax on Tuesday.
"The FSB department in the republic of Crimea and Sevastopol conducting an investigative operation has detained an agent of the Ukrainian Security Service in the Kherson region; the agent was sent to Crimea for staging acts of sabotage. FSB officers apprehended Gennady Lemeshko on August 12 when he was trying to damage a power transmission line near the Sudak-Novy Svet road," the spokesman said.
The detainee was carrying two 200-type TNT blocks with ZTP-50 fuses, a detonator, an RGD-5 grenade with an installed fuse, canisters with an incendiary liquid, a hand saw (for sawing wooden pillars of the power transmission line) and a digital camera "for documenting the acts of sabotage and reporting them to his curators in the Ukrainian Security Service," he said.
