KIEV, June 10. /TASS/. Investigators from France’s Prosecutor-General Office are scheduled to arrive in Kiev to investigate last month’s arrest of a French suspect tied to an alleged foiled Euro 2016 terror plot, Ukraine’s Security Service chief Vasily Gritsak announced on Friday.
"In the near future, officials from France’s Prosecutor-General’s Office will arrive. We have received a request for legal support," Gritsak said. The French investigators will study the evidence and take part in criminal proceedings against the defendant, he said.
On June 6, Gritsak told reporters that in late May the SBU had detained a French citizen at the Yagodin checkpoint. The individual was carrying a large amount of weapons and explosives, among them five Kalashnikov rifles, two grenade launchers, 125 kg of TNT and 100 detonators.
The SBU concluded that the weapons could have been used to carry out at least 15 terrorist attacks during this summer’s UEFA Euro Cup in France. The suspect remains in Ukrainian custody.
