Ukraine Def. Ministry says FSB directing counterintel soap opera in Crimea

Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman for Anti-Terrorist Operation issues Andriy Lysenko has dubbed yet another detention of Ukrainian citizens in Crimea whom the Russia labeled ”saboteurs” continuation of the FSB`s soap opera of fakes.

”Now we are witnessing a continuation of the Russian FSB`s soap opera of fakes titled `Wherever you look – they [enemies] are everywhere.` It`s a new episode in the series, another arrest of the alleged ”Ukrainian intelligence officers,” he said, according to 112 Ukraine TV channel.

Lysenko also added that the Russian secret services had always resorted to the standard techniques.

”We predicted that this may continue, because they see a real `Klondike` on the Crimean peninsula. This time, these are retired officers who stayed there even before the Russian aggression and occupation of Crimea, these are the people who had wrapped up their military service long time ago. They did some business, they lived there with their families. Therefore, there is no great need [for the FSB] to specially seek for anyone,” he said.
