SBU denounces Lifenews report on ISIL threat, vows to investigate Kremlin involvement instead
The Ukrainian security services maintain no contacts with Russia, therefore the report that the FSB allegedly warned of possible terrorist attacks by ISIL militants in Ukraine is a fake, that’s according to SBU spokesperson Olena Gitlyanska who commented to the Ukrainska Pravda online newspaper on Lifenews report released earlier on Wednesday.
"We have no relations with the Russian secret services, so they couldn’t have passed us anything. This is a fake," said Gitlyanskaya.
In an interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel later on Wednesday, Gitlyanska added that the SBU will check the report anyway, as well as the version of a possible involvement of the Russian special services plotting terrorist attacks in Ukraine under the guise of ISIL.
Thus, the SBU responded to the information earlier released by Russian propaganda channel LifeNews that the security services of the Russian Federation obtained evidence of ISIL plotting terrorist acts in Ukraine, and allegedly contacted Ukraine’s SBU on this matter.
