The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) is recording the intensified activity of Russian intelligence groups on Ukrainian territory.

SBU Chief Vasyl Hrytsak said this at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"SBU is recording the intensified activity of Russian special services on Ukrainian territory. Their subversive activities are manifested in the work of sabotage reconnaissance groups, attempts to commit acts of sabotage, terrorist attacks, and to organize pseudo protests on ethnic grounds. Fake news are systemically spun, and the assassinations of certain public figures and famous personalities are plotted," he said.

According to him, the information received points to the escalation of intelligence terrorist activities of Russian special groups on Ukrainian territory.

"Russia's FSB deploys sabotage groups to carry out terrorist attacks on our territory," Hrytsak said.

According to him, among their main targets are strategic infrastructure facilities, and another goal is the killing of people, regardless of their political affiliation, "so as to yield the public outcry."

Hrytsak said that a number of terrorist attacks had already been prevented.

"SBU exposed three of such sabotage groups over the last month," he said.
