KIEV, August 10. /TASS/. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry has refuted the statement of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) on eliminating the Ukrainian intelligence network that was preparing terrorist attacks in Crimea.
"Such statements by the FSB are nothing else but an attempt to justify the redeployment and aggressive actions of Russian military units," the ministry said in a statement.
The General Staff of the Ukrainian armed forces has repudiated the statement of the Russian Federal Security Service.
"Any statements of this kind are provocative," Vladislav Seleznyov, a spokesman for the General Staff, told Radio Liberty.
The FSB said earlier on Wednesday it prevented two penetration attempts into Crimea’s territory by the groups of saboteurs from Ukraine in the small hours of August 8.
