MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. Yevgeny Panov, the supposed leader of the Ukrainian subversive group seized in Crimea, has made a confession stating that secret service career officers had been members of the group in charge of preparing sabotage attacks.
The video recording with his confessions was aired by Rossiya'24 news channel.
"The group included the professional intelligence officers Alexander Kirillov (codename Kirill), someone Dmitry by name, and Oleg Litvinenko (codename Dog Fox). Also, the group includes Sambul Alexei (codename Sigh), and a guy whose first name or surname I don't know but who has the codename Deshikh," Panov said.
The Russian Federal Security Service said on Wednesday, August 10, that it had detained a group of Ukrainian saboteurs near the city of Armyansk (Crimea) and that it had prevented terrorist attacks in Crimea prepared by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s main intelligence directorate. The FSB said their planned targets were critically important infrastructure and life support facilities.
