LUGANSK, March 12. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Security Service plotted a terrorist attack on the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Alexander Zakharchenko, the state security ministry of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) said on Sunday after questioning a detained Ukrainian agent, Sergei Ivanchuk.
Ivanchuk said he had been tasked to blow up Zakharchenko’s car when it is on its way to the Uspenka checkpoint, LuganskInformCenter said citing the ministry.
Apart from that, Ivanchuk said his another task was to worm his way into confidence of Mikhail Tolstykh, the commander of the DPR’s Somali battalion, known under the nickname Givi. Earlier, the LPR state security ministry said the servicemen of the 8th regiment of Ukraine’s special operations force were behind Tolstykh’s murder. Invanchuk served in that regiment.
On March 10, LPR’ security and law enforcement services exposed a network of several groups of Ukrainian diversionists acting in its territory and detained their members. Some of them confessed committing a number of terrorist attacks in the self-proclaimed republics and in Russia.
