"Criminal unit officers of the National Police Main Department in the Donetsk region have tracked down a terrorist group established by the Russian Federation in the terrorist-controlled territory of the Donetsk region. With the help of recruited persons, the saboteurs smuggled weapons and explosives from the occupied territory to the peaceful Ukrainian regions. The accomplices of terrorists hid the arms in well-defined places with the purpose of their further use for destabilizing the situation in Ukraine's major cities," National Police Main Department in the Donetsk region Head Viacheslav Abroskin said.
In the course of the special operation, conducted in cooperation with the Security Service of Ukraine, law enforcers seized more than 100 kg of TNT as well as weapons and ammunition in the territory of the Donetsk, Zaporizhia, and Kharkiv regions.
Investigative measures aimed at establishing persons involved in the activity of the exposed subversive group are underway.
