This was stated by the National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov, Censor.NET reports the NSDC press service.
"Russian special services select crowded places in the occupied territory, [like] kindergartens, schools, residential and infrastructure buildings, etc. for practicing terrorist act scenarios," he said adding that terrorist leaders want the attacks to bring the same number of victims among civilians in the occupied territory "as the number of those killed in the MH17 tragedy."
The secretary notes that criminal provocations are devised by Moscow to accuse the Ukrainian leadership of crimes against humanity "and initiate bringing Ukrainian authorities to responsibility at the international level."
"This bloody crime is to be committed under the guise of the Ukrainian forces attacks in response to numerous provocations," he explained.
Oleksandr Turchynov noted that Russian special services intended "to make the bloody terrorist attacks divert world's attention from Russia's responsibility for the downed Boeing, as well as to legitimize and justify intensification of Russian aggression and to deprive Ukraine of the international support putting it to isolation."
