SEVASTOPOL, November 25. /TASS/. A court in Sevastopol upheld arrest of member of a group accused of plotting acts of sabotage at Crimea’s military and vital infrastructure facilities, the press service of the city court said.
The court considered on Friday an appeal filed by the lawyers of Vladimir Dudko who asked to change a restriction measure for him to house arrest or bail. "The court refused to satisfy the complaint, the ruling of the court of first instance is unchanged," the statement said.
Three saboteurs - Vladimir Dudko, Dmitry Shtyblikov and Alexei Bessarabov - were detained in Sevastopol on November 9. Russia’s Federal Security Service said they were members of a sabotage and terrorist group of the main intelligence directorate of Ukraine’s defense ministry. According to investigators, they had allegedly plotted acts of sabotage at Crimea’s military facilities and crucial infrastructure facilities.
The next day the court arrested the suspects for two months. The FSB later released a video showing that Shtyblikov and Bessarabov confessed to being members of the main intelligence directorate and their goal was to collect intelligence data and organize acts of sabotage.
