The Security Service of Ukraine has detained the killers of the special services of the Russian Federation, who planned the murders of Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov and the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense Kirill Budanov, as well as a well-known activist.

A multi-stage special operation was carried out and a sabotage and reconnaissance group of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces (better known as the GRU) was neutralized, according to the SBU Telegram channel.

According to the intelligence service, Russian “curators” promised to pay the perpetrators from 100 to 150 thousand dollars for the murder of each person.

“… The DRG was formed by career officers of the military intelligence of the Russian Federation to carry out subversive activities on the territory of Ukraine. It included a resident of the temporarily occupied Lugansk, who, as part of the illegal armed formations of the terrorist organization “LPR”, took an active part in the hostilities against the forces of the ATO in East,” the SBU said.

The security service added that, on the instructions of a coordinator from Moscow, the attacker was looking for a killer, using his connections among the criminals.

A resident of Kyiv agreed to become a killer. He agreed to a “test” – to kill a Ukrainian soldier for $5,000, who, according to the Russian invaders, was allegedly involved in the physical massacre of captured Russian soldiers.

“… in order to assassinate the heads of the defense departments, the “messenger” decided to personally arrive on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities. Here, together with an accomplice, they had to prepare a “liquidation” plan and submit it for approval to their leaders in the Russian Federation. The attacker masked the routes of movement, therefore entered Ukraine through the territory of Belarus,” the SBU added.

The suspect entered Ukrainian territory through the Domanovo checkpoint in the Volyn region and met with an accomplice. Both attackers were detained by the security forces in Kovel.

During the search, the “connected man” was found to have evidence of criminal acts, as well as a passport of a Russian citizen. Both detainees were informed of suspicion of high treason committed under martial law and of premeditated murder.

Recall that Russian invaders invaded Ukraine without declaring war early in the morning on February 24. Ukrainian soldiers gave a worthy rebuff to the opponents – about 42 thousand 340 enemies have already been destroyed on our territory .

In early March, Mikhail Podolyak, an adviser to the head of the President’s Office, said that Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky had already survived more than 10 assassination attempts .

  1. Very good job, BSU!
    Every assassination attempt on Zelensky and others have been thwarted.
    I hope that we have assassins set on Putler and his gang.
