The head of a terrorist organization "DPR" Vitaly Zakharchenko ordered the full combat alert according to "112 Ukraine" report with reference to the separatists’ information resource "DAN".
Zakharchenko stated that militant forces were put in full combat alert, allegedly because of the threat posed by the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the three directions. However, Zakharchenko did not specify those directions saying only that the combat readiness of the armed forces was enhanced.
The President Poroshenko Poroshenko ordered to alert all military units near the administrative border with Crimea, as well as in Donbas.
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.
