Yesterday, May 28 2015, a terrorist attack was prevented in Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) zone, Sector A. Russian mercenaries tried to commit mass murder of civilian people in Stanytsia Luhanska that borders with the territory of Lugansk Region controlled by pro-Russian rebels.
Military counter-intelligence unit of Security Service of Ukraine got information that terrorists were planning to blow up a bomb near the building of Pension Fund in Stanytsia Luhanska. They planned to do it during the meeting of people who wanted to protest against the order to close the traffic via destroyed bridge that connects Ukraine controlled territory and the territory controlled by so-called Lugansk People’s Republic. The passage was closed by the order of Hennadiy Moskal, the head of Civil-Military Administration of Lugansk Region. Dozens of civilian people could be killed in that terrorists attack and that would destabilize situation in the region and would spread separatist ideas among the population.
Military counter-intelligence unit together with military special forces unit “Zahid” located the bomb and neutralized it. Military who took part in the operation said that the bomb was made by professionals, artillery shell 120 mm caliber was connected to radio-detonator that could be activated remotely at any moment.
We were aware of the danger of this bomb and were not wasting time. So we demined the artillery shell right at the spot taking all security measures. We took under control the territory around and did our job. Luckily there were no civilians nearby. We hope that this event will show to people of Lugansk Region what is the real position of followers of “Russian world”
– Special Forces officer, who took part in the operation.
