As reported, the Russian FSB announced detention of another "Ukrainian saboteurs" in annexed Sevastopol Nov. 9. The subversives were allegedly plotting sabotage against sensitive facilities in Crimea.

The Russian law enforcers said the detainees were alleged members of the "subversive-terrorist group of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine."
