Panov's family claimed he was abducted from Zaporizhia region and forcibly brought to the peninsula
Ukrainian citizen Yevhen Panov, captured by Russia's FSB special service and accused of plotting terror attacks, crossed into the temporarily occupied peninsula himself, on his own car.
The representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate at Ukraine's Defense Ministry Vadym Skibitsky reported about while commenting on the case for the Ukrainian 112 TV channel.
Skibitsky added the information is preliminary.
As earlier reported, brother of Panov said he was abducted and taken to Crimea to stage a provocation against Ukraine. On August 11 Ukraine's police have launched a criminal investigation into his disappearance.
Panov is a truck driver who previously volunteered in the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine. Moscow claims Panov worked as a Ukrainian military intelligence officer, Kyiv denies the allegations.
Simferopol court has already ruled to arrest Panov for 2 months.
