Ukrainian military intelligence agency denies the Russian allegations
Two more 'Ukrainian saboteurs' arrested in the occupied Crimea reported by the Russian media, the UNIAN agency reports.
According to these reports, the Simferopol district court ordered the arrest of two more people charged with intending to conduct subversive activity at infrastructure objects in the peninsula.
One of the so-called saboteurs is reported as Ukraine's Chief Directorate of Intelligence colonel Oleksiy Stogniy, while the other one is allegedly identified as Hlib Shabliy. They were reportedly arrested last week.
"The court hearing was conducted behind closed doors. A detention of 2 months is ordered as the pre-trial restriction measure. Their ties with the other three saboteurs convicted previously, have been revealed," the RIA news agency reports.
As reported previously, another Ukrainian 'saboteur group' was allegedly arrested by the occupational forces in Sevastopol. The Ukrainians were convicted of subversive activities.
Ukraine's top intelligence agency has been denying these allegations.
"This regular fake news of the Russian special services is aimed to hide their own repressive actions towards the population on the peninsula , as well as to discredit Ukraine in the eyes of the world," the agency' officials claim.
