The SBU Security Service of Ukraine has published on its YouTube channel fragments of conversations of a French citizen Gregoire Moutaux, who is suspected of plotting terrorist attacks during the EURO-2016 football tournament.


In these fragments, the French national (call sign Muto) speaks in broken English supposedly with a citizen of Ukraine.

The suspect told the Ukrainian that his goal was for a small group to hold a certain operation, which will affect every French citizen. He also offered the Ukrainian man to contribute.
