Within the next few weeks the Russian special service FSB is planning provocations in southern and eastern oblasts of Ukraine aimed at fanning the inter-ethnic feud and marring the image of Ukraine, SBU says Apr. 21.
Fake protests of “representatives” of ethnic minorities are expected in oblasts Kharkiv, Mykolayiv and Kherson.
Last week SBU foiled a similar paid-up protest of ethnic Bulgarian s in Odesa when among the 30 detained activists there were no Bulgarians. SBU agents exposed its leaders and established that the masterminds were in Russia.
SBU warns Ukrainians of the likely provocations, urging them to be loyal citizens of Ukraine.
