Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) thwarted an alleged attempt by the Ukrainian special services to blow up a warship of the Black Sea Fleet carrying high-precision missile weapons.

As a result of the measures taken, a serviceman of the Russian Navy recruited by the Ukrainian special service was detained, from whom two improvised explosive devices with a total mass of 1 kg in TNT equivalent were seized. He is also suspected of transferring to the enemy information constituting a state secret, the FSB said.

A decision is made to initiate criminal cases under Articles 205 (“terrorist act”), 222.1 (“illegal trafficking in explosives or explosive devices”), 275 (“high treason”), 283 (“disclosure of information constituting state secrets”) of the Criminal Code of Russia.
