August 10, 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."
Earlier, the spokesman of the Main Directorate of Intelligence with the Ukraine’s Defense Ministry Vadym Skibitskiy informed that the Russian troops exercised antiterrorist measures in the occupied Crimea.
