ST. PETERSBURG, April 18. /TASS/. Kiev’s push to label Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) and the Main Directorate of the General Staff of Russia’s Armed Forces (GRU) as terrorist organizations is nonsense and baloney, FSB Director Alexander Bortnikov told TASS on Thursday.
"This is just pure baloney. When some people say such things, it seems they are completely out of their minds," he said. "So let them figure out for themselves what is going on in their heads," he added.
Earlier on Thursday, Secretary of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council Alexander Turchinov called for labeling Russia’s FSB and GRU as terrorist organizations.
