The Security Service prevented a series of contract killings of representatives of the top military-political leadership and public figures of Ukraine.
As a result of a multi-stage special operation, the sabotage and intelligence group of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the USSR (better known as the GRU) was neutralized.
The attackers were preparing for the physical liquidation of the Minister of Defense and the head of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of our country, as well as a well-known Ukrainian activist.
For the murder of each of them, the Russian “curators” promised a reward in the amount of 100 to 150 thousand dollars. USA.
It was established that the DRG was formed by staff members of the military intelligence of the Russian Federation to carry out subversive activities on the territory of Ukraine. It included a resident of temporarily occupied Luhansk, who as part of the illegal armed formations of the terrorist organization “LNR” took an active part in combat operations against the ATO forces in the east.
On the instructions of the coordinator from Moscow, he, using his connections among criminal circles, was looking for a killer to commit contract killings.
A resident of Kyiv responded to his “offer”. For 5 thousand dollars. He agreed with the USA to eliminate a Ukrainian soldier who, according to the occupiers, was allegedly involved in the physical massacre of Russian prisoners of war.
This assassination was supposed to be a “test trial” before the main tasks of the enemy.
And in order to assassinate the heads of the defense departments, the “liaison” decided to personally come to the territory under the control of the Ukrainian authorities. Here, together with an accomplice, they had to prepare a “liquidation” plan and submit it for approval to their managers in the Russian Federation.
The attacker disguised the routes of movement, so he drove into Ukraine through the territory of Belarus.
SBU employees documented his arrival in the Volyn region through the Domanove checkpoint and his meeting with an accomplice.
In order to prevent the commission of particularly serious crimes, counter-intelligence officers of the Security Service with the involvement of soldiers of the Central Security Service “A” detained both criminals in Kovel.
During the search, evidence of criminal acts, as well as a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation, were found in the “bondman’s possession”.
Currently, both detainees have been charged with treason committed under martial law and intentional murder. The issue of choosing a preventive measure in the form of detention is being resolved.
“The enemy cannot win on the battlefield, so he resorts to his usual methods – he tries to organize assassination attempts on the military and heads of Ukrainian authorities. And thereby once again proves to the whole world that Russia is a terrorist state that does not follow any civilized rules. But we perfectly understand what to expect from the Russian Federation, so we act in advance and neutralize the enemy’s special operations in advance. We will continue to do this!” – emphasized acting Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Vasyl Malyuk.
Complex measures are underway to bring to justice the Russian coordinators of subversive activities who are currently hiding in the Russian Federation.
Crime detection measures were carried out by employees of the Main Directorate of the SBU in Kyiv and Kyiv region together with units of the SBU of the Volyn region, the National Police and under the procedural guidance of the Pechersk District Prosecutor’s Office of Kyiv.
