Russia’s FSB recruit ordered to attack Polish embassy in Kyiv (video)

Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) has initiated a criminal proceeding under Article 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (high treason) against a citizen of Ukraine, recruited by the Russian special services to act against Ukraine for profit.

A 59-year old Kyiv resident S., a university professor, was recruited by an officer of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) back in 2005 – during his trip to Moscow. He contacted his handler from the foreign special service, alias ‘Olexandr Viacheslavovych’, by a mobile phone.

According to the citizen S., in early May he was given a task to damage power network cables and cut off power from the Central Electoral Commission building in order to hinder vote counting in the Presidential elections day. Law enforcers prevented the diversion with reinforced security precautions.

Later on, the Russian recruit received another task from FSB to commit an act of provocation. On June 28, during the Constitution Day, he had to fire with signal flares at the premises of the Polish Embassy in Kyiv and leave the ‘Pravyi Sector’ symbols on the ground to discredit the organisation. According to the professor, the Russian officers promised him 3 000 Euros for his actions.
