"We have facts that prove participation of the Russian Federation, as an enemy of the Ukrainian state, in providing weapons to persons who plotted and were preparing to commit a terrorist act against the top leadership of the state and civilians in the capital city with the aim of overthrowing the constitutional order," he said, according to 112 Ukraine.
