Ukraine`s Defense Ministry comments on Russian FSB`s accusation of attack on Crimea

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry has dismissed the information from the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) that the Ukrainian Defense Ministry`s intelligence units are involved in subversive activity in Crimea.

”Such allegations by the FSB are nothing but an attempt to justify the redeployment and aggression of the Russian Federation troops in the territory of the temporarily occupied peninsula. In this way representatives of the Russian special services are trying to divert attention of the local population and the international community from criminal acts to transform the peninsula into an isolated military base,” the ministry said in its statement on Wednesday.

The ministry noted that ”groundless were also the accusations of an attack on Crimea from mainland Ukraine.”

As UNIAN reported earlier, the FSB reported that Ukrainian special forces units had allegedly made two attempts of a breakthrough sabotage accompanied by massive covering fire from the Ukrainian side.
