Ukraine's President holds extraordinary meeting with security and law enforcement forces
Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko ordered to enhance the level of combat readiness of all the formations and units serving at the administrative border with the temporarily occupied Crimean peninsula and the militant-controlled Donbas territories.
The decision was taken after Poroshenko has held an extraordinary meeting with the country's top security, military and law enforcement officers on how to respond to Russia's accusations of plotting terror attacks in Crimea.
FSB said it had arrested several Ukrainians, allegedly responsible for organizing terrorist acts on the peninsula.
Former Ukrainian soldier and a frontline volunteer Yevhen Panov is so far the only man that Russia has officially named among the several alleged ‘terrorists'.
Moscow claims that Panov, resident of Energodar in Zaporizhia region, works for Ukraine's Intelligence service. Ukraine, in turn, categorically denies the allegations.
Panov's family says he was abducted and forcibly taken to Crimea. Ukraine's police has already launched a criminal case into the abduction.
