MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. A Russian serviceman was wounded during an armed clash with a Ukrainian sabotage group on the border with Ukraine in Crimea on August 7, a source in medical circles told TASS.
"One serviceman was taken to a hospital of Armyansk [in northern Crimea] with a gunshot wound on August 7. He was provided with medical assistance," the source said.
The serviceman was later sent to a hospital in Moscow, he added.
No official comments on the injuries during the clashes with the Ukrainian saboteurs have been made yet.
Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said on Wednesday it has foiled terrorist attacks in Crimea plotted by Ukraine’s Defense Ministry’s main intelligence directorate.
One FSB officer was killed during the operation to detain the terrorists. Later a serviceman of Russia’s Defense Ministry was killed as the saboteurs made a second attempt of intrusion.
The terrorist attacks were designed to target critical infrastructure and life support facilities of Crimea.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has described as silly and criminal the Ukrainian special services’ attempt at an act of sabotage in Crimea. The real purpose was to distract attention from Ukraine’s internal problems, he added.
Ukraine’s President Pyotr Poroshenko and the Foreign Ministry have rejected Moscow’s accusations calling the saboteurs’ detention a provocation.
