Day by day, Ukraine's law enforcement agencies "become stronger in counteracting Russian aggression and all manifestations of hybrid warfare in Ukraine," he wrote.

"Moscow is hardly likely to stop there – I have ordered that Arkady and his family be provided with 24-hour security," Poroshenko added.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Arkady Babchenko, the Russian journalist who was reported to have been shot dead in Kyiv, turned up alive at a news conference in Ukraine on May 30. His staged "murder" was a special operation conducted by the SBU.
