FSB mulling new provocations against Ukrainians: fears spread in Moscow of "Ukrainian sabotage groups"
The information about the intentions of supposedly "Ukrainian terrorists" to carry out a series of large scale acts of terror at Moscow's railway stations (Kazan, Kiev, Kursk, Yaroslavl, and Paveletsky) on August 24 is being spread among Russia's law enforcement agencies and Federal Security Service (FSB), according to Ukraine’s Information Resistance volunteer group.
In this regard, security officials are being instructed to "take measures to interact with all agencies and special services involved to exchange intel in case the situation develops, especially if signs of preparation of a terrorist attack are discovered,” the Information Resistance wrote referring to its trustworthy sources, familiar with the matter.
The FSB, Moscow Regional Center for Railroad Safety, and Transport Police take part in the joint efforts, the report says.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Head of the SBU Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Vasyl Hrytsak said that Russian intelligence services had plotted to use three former ATO troops as potential “executors” of terrorist acts in Moscow, without their knowledge, in an operation aimed to discredit Ukraine on the international arena. The mediators had initially offered highly-paid construction jobs in Moscow. Instead, the three men were taken to various infrastructure facilities across Moscow, namely the subway and railway stations, while their visits were recorded on camera and documented otherwise by calling them on the cell phones earlier given to them by the organizers of the plot.
