LUGANSK, August 19. /TASS/. The provocations, which Kiev has organized at the border with Crimea and in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) may toughen the Minsk talks’ agenda, the LPR’s head Igor Plotnitsky said on Friday.
"If Kiev fulfilled the obligations it had inked (in Minsk), then most problems could have been settled long ago," he said. "Those are the economic blockade, the cultural blockade, the political one, and many-many other things, but we did admit that would be the way Kiev would hold the talks."
"My impression is - after the events both here and in Crimea, the agenda could become tougher," LuganskInformCenter quoted him. "We realize Minsk is necessary, but Kiev does not fulfil its obligations."
On August 10, Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said it had detained a group of saboteurs in Crimea and prevented a series of terrorist attacks in the peninsula, which the chief intelligence directorate of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry had been plotting to stage at key infrastructures. Two Russian military servicemen were killed in the operation to detain the terrorists. Criminal cases were opened. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the attempt at sabotage in Crimea by Ukrainian intelligence services was silly and criminal, and its purpose was to distract attention from domestic problems.
In the morning on August 6, a powerful explosive device went off near Plotnitsky’s car. The injured official was taken to hospital. One of the versions considered is the assassination attempt was organized by a Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance group.
