Earlier, the FSB distributed a statement on the prevention of terrorist attacks in the Crimea, allegedly plotted by the Chief of the Ukraine's Defense Intelligence. The Russian Security Services stated it has identified a saboteur group who killed the Russian FSB officer while being arrested outside the city of Armyansk.

Moreover, the FSB announced the "liquidation of the Ukrainian intelligence agent network".

The fake statement also reported on the attempts by subversive and terrorist groups "to break through" to the territory of the peninsula using "massive shelling and armored vehicles of the Ukrainian Armed Forces."

Chief of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine argues the Russia's FSB charges are fake.

The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that bringing charges of terrorism against Ukraine in the occupied Crimea sounds as meaningless and cynical .The Head of State stressed that Ukraine seeks restoration of its territorial integrity and sovereignty, including the termination of the Crimea occupation, solely by politico-diplomatic means.
