DPR State Security Ministry prevents act of terror planned by Ukrainian secret service
“On 28 January, MGB prevented an act of terror and sabotage planned by Ukrainian secret services and targeting a DPR military unit,” MGB spokeswoman Maria Petrova told a news briefing at Donetsk News Agency on Tuesday.
“The objective was to destroy military and civilian infrastructure, cause civilian casualties and destabilize DPR socio-political situation,” Petrova said.
To prepare the terrorist attack, Ukrainian secret service recruited DPR militiaman Eduard Klypa, contacting him through his landlord.
They demanded from Klypa data on his military unit hardware and personnel. For 18 months, Ukrainian secret services trusted him as their agent, but he actually was feeding them the wrong data under MGB supervision.
“Ukrainian side passed to Klypa a magnetic explosive device disguised as a plastic briefcase to blow up a depot. The device was retrieved and defused,” the MGB spokeswoman said.
Klypa said he had been blackmailed with threats against his relatives who lived in Kiev-controlled Mariupol, but that he immediately reported it to DPR law-enforcers.
MGB urges DPR residents to immediately report Kiev’s blackmailing and recruiting attempts. *jk
