Updates on the Ukrainian saboteurs attempt in the Russian Bryansk region


According to the Russian security services, an infiltrated group opened fire on a car, killing two civilians and injuring a child in the village of Lyubchany, on the border with Ukraine.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday that Moscow will take measures to prevent future infiltration of Ukrainian elements, adding, Conclusions will be drawn at the end of the investigation.

The Ukrainian presidency denied these allegations, considering it a deliberate provocation aimed at justifying the invasion that has been going on for more than a year.

In two videos posted on social media four men in military fatigues claim to have carried out the incursion, presenting themselves as members of a group of the Russian volunteers within the Ukrainian army.

Russian and Ukrainian media have reported that one of these men is Denis Nikitin, a Russian neo-Nazi who has been living in Ukraine for years.

The Russian Investigative Committee announced on Friday that it had sent a team to the scene of the incident, stressing that the situation was under the control of law enforcement forces.

Russian security forces said they had found a large amount of explosives in the area.

According to Russian deputy Alexander Khenstein, four members of the National Guard were wounded during an operation in the village of Soshani, also on the border.

The Russian authorities also reported several attacks by Ukrainian drones this week targeting the Crimean peninsula, which it annexed, and for the first time a drone was shot down near Moscow without causing any damage.

The Russian TASS news agency, quoting security sources, reported on Friday that a drone had exploded in the sky of the Kolomna region, about 100 km southeast of Moscow.

In addition, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that the Kremlin had not taken a decision to impose martial law in a number of regions because of the attack on the Bryansk region.

This came in Peskov’s press briefing on Friday, where Peskov stressed that conclusions about the terrorist incident carried out by a Ukrainian sabotage group will be drawn based on the results of the investigation, in response to whether that group will be classified as a terrorist organization.

Peskov stressed that the terrorist attack that took place on Thursday will be investigated and all measures and measures will be taken to prevent it from happening in the future.

In response to a question by reporters about whether there are additional checks to protect state borders, and if Russian President Vladimir Putin intends to give additional instructions to the FSB, Peskov said: “You know that there is a border system operating in the region, and additional measures are being taken… All measures will be taken to prevent similar events in the future”.
