Director of the International Legal Department of Administration of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, Lieutenant-General Oleksandr Melnykov stated this, Censor.NET informs citing Interfax-Ukraine.
"We have indisputable evidence that bandits coordinate their actions with the Russian Federal Security Service and the Border Guard Service, which is part of the FSB," Melnykov said at a press conference on Wednesday.
According to him, the Russian border guards do not respond to their Ukrainian colleagues' appeals regarding large-scale border violations.
"They are not going to follow by default the Russian Federation law prohibiting the smuggling of weapons," the representative of the State Border Service said.
Melnykov told that Russian border guards do not notice glaring violations of the border by the militants but instead "cynically inform the Ukrainian side about the facts of the livestock death" as a result of the attacks from the Ukrainian side.
