The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has arrested a man in Zaporizhzhia for planning terror attacks and storing an arms chace under the bed of his 6-year-old daughter, the service's press office reported on July 25.
According to the SBU, he had been preparing a series of terror attacks against the Armed Forces of Ukraine on May 9, earlier this year.
On the eve of this date, the SBU detained two other Russian agents located near the frontline in Eastern Ukraine, who were his point of contact with the country’s security services.
The individual was arrested at his apartment in Zaporizhzhia, in which he hid weapons, including a loaded Kalashnikov rifle, grenades, small arms and ammunition.
The accused agent was known to publically air his pro-Kremlin views to those around him.
The SBU is still considering what charges to bring against the individual.
