KIEV, February 26. /TASS/. The organizer and perpetrators of the terrorist attack in eastern Ukraine's Kharkiv on February 22 that killed four have been detained, secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Turchynov said on Thursday.

He said a special operation in Kharkiv on Thursday had been crowned by the detention of "five members of a terrorist group." "Weapons and munitions, including plastid, detonators for explosive devices and grenades, were seized from them," he said.

Among those detained, according to Turchynov, "are both the organizer of the crime and the actual perpetrators."

"Moreover, two more criminals linked to this group were detained by police in Mariupol, where they were plotting a terrorist attack. Ten kilograms of TNT was seized during the detention," he said.
