Employees of the Russian Federal Security Service prevented a terrorist attack against nuclear power facilities planned by the special services of Ukraine.

“On the eve of the celebration of the 78th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, a terrorist and sabotage group of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine tried to undermine more than 30 high-voltage power lines of the Leningrad and Kalinin nuclear power plant. which, according to the plan of the Ukrainian special services, would lead to the shutdown of nuclear reactors, violation of the normal mode of operation of the nuclear power plant, and cause serious financial and reputational damage to the Russian Federation,” reads the statement of says the CSO of the FSB of Russia.

It became known that the terrorists managed to blow up one and undermine 4 pillars of the power transmission line of the Leningrad NPP and plant improvised explosive devices under 7 pillars of the Kalinin NPP. But fortunately, serious consequences were avoided.

“As a result of the measures taken by the federal security service, members of the DTG, citizens of Ukraine Maistruk Oleksandr, born in 1978. (pseudonym “Mechanic”), and Usatenko Eduard, born in 1974. (pseudonym “Max”) were detained. ”), a citizen of Ukraine and Russia, Yuriy Kishchak, born in 1963, was included in the list of wanted persons. (pseudonym “South Coast”), currently located in Belgium”, the members of the terrorist group were listed in the Russian FSB.

Now the bandits are giving evidence to the investigation. They told how they were recruited in September last year by a 49-year-old employee of the Ukrainian Foreign Intelligence Service, Lieutenant Colonel Vitaliy Gorbatyuk, and received special training in camps located in the Kiev and Nikolaev regions of Ukraine.

– In order to commit sabotage, they illegally crossed the Russian-Belarusian border in the Pskov region, where they arrived from the territory of Ukraine in transit through Poland and Belarus. In one night, seven pillars were mined. There was an explosion, we fled, recalls a citizen of Ukraine Oleksandr Maistruk.

– He was recruited by Gorbatyuk Vitaly as an employee of the foreign intelligence service. We were commissioned to blow up power transmission towers in Russia. To do this, they told us the location of the cache where the explosives and timers were stored, – says Eduard Usatenko on camera.

Ukrainian nationalists transported weapons and explosives across Russia in a cargo trailer, the sides of which were equipped with storage for the covert transport of weapons and firearms. Then they set up hideouts.

“During the investigation, they seized from the saboteurs’ caches: 36.5 kg of S-4 plastic explosive, 61 foreign-made electric detonators, 38 electronic timers and 2 PM pistols with ammunition,” the Russian FSB said.

A criminal case was initiated against members of the sabotage group, which included two citizens of Russia, under the articles “sabotage”, “acquisition, transfer, sale, storage, transportation, transfer or illegal transportation of explosives or explosive devices.” All of them have been arrested.

Russia’s FSB noted that measures to document criminal activity and search for the organizers, saboteurs and their accomplices continue.
