MOSCOW, January 23. /TASS/. The Russian national and Ukrainian intelligence agent apprehended in the North Caucasus plotted a terror act against police, according to the video of the suspect’s questioning released by Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) on Monday.
"I was an agent of Ukrainian intelligence services with the call sign Alehandro. On their assignment, I was intended to come to the North Caucasian Federal District and commit a terror act against police personnel," the detainee said.
"I repent for the wrongdoing and admit the guilt," he said.
The FSB press office reported earlier on Monday that security forces had foiled a terror attack plotted by a Nazi ideology supporter on an assignment from Ukraine’s intelligence in the North Caucasus.
