Russia may stage terrorist attacks during World Cup to blame Ukraine - Hrytsak

Russia may resort to destabilization on its territory during the 2018 FIFA World Cup in order to blame Ukraine for that.

Head of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Vasyl Hrytsak said this in an interview with German newspaper Bild.

"I would not be surprised if Russia resorts to destabilization in its own country in order to blame Ukraine. They can do everything, even stage attacks in their country so as to shift responsibility for them onto us," he said, when asked whether he expects Russia to use the FIFA World Cup to carry out its special operations.

According to Hrytsak, Russian security services do not recognize the rules. He also noted that the possible death of journalist Arkady Babchenko and other people could have led to unrest in Ukraine and Kyiv would have been accused that the authorities cannot protect people.
