Details: Russian security services have stated that an agent from the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) born in 1972 had been arrested in Moscow Oblast. He was allegedly preparing "terrorist attacks" with the use of two Igla man-portable air-defence systems (MANPADS).

The Russians claim that the agent was assigned by the SSU to transport the MANPADS from Kyiv to Russia via Estonia to allegedly prepare terrorist attacks. The agent transported the systems in a car rigged with a hiding place and also found a place for their secret storage. 

The investigators stated that the defendant has "repented" and he is cooperating with the investigation.

At the same time, the FSB did not disclose what exactly the alleged perpetrator was going to blow up using the MANPADS.

The FSB also allegedly prevented a "terrorist attack" at the transport terminal in the city of Briansk in Russia. The attack was supposedly "prepared by the Ukrainian security services".

It is also reported that another citizen of Ukraine, born in 1967, who arrived in Russia from Kyiv through Estonia, was detained.

In Briansk Oblast in Russia, he allegedly recovered a "stash prepared by the Ukrainian security services containing the components of explosive devices".

Background: Russia’s FSB reported on the results of the investigation of the explosion on the Crimean Bridge. According to their reports, 8 people were detained in total. The Russians stated that they believe the Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine and Kyrylo Budanov, its head, were the organisers of the explosion.
