Ukrainian troops on Crimean border on high alert after rising tension with Russia
August 15, 2016, 0:40:41 CEST | Wikinews

The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) claimed, on Wednesday, to have captured a group of Ukrainian saboteurs, who possessed 20 explosive devices; amid Russian accusations of Ukrainian military actions in Crimea, an area that Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014. A video on Russian state television allegedly showed Yevyen Panov confessing to being a part of the Ukrainian military in Crimea, seeking to commit "acts of sabotage". The FSB claimed that inn the process of foiling the plot, a Russian soldier and a secret service agent died. Petro Poroshenko, president of Ukraine, put his own troops on high alert, suggesting that the accusations were just an excuse for further military actions against Ukraine.

Sergey Aksyonov, appointed head of Crimea by Russia, stated to Russian state media: "With saboteurs I think we should act as farmers do with crows who spoil the crops. Kill them and hang their bodies at the border to put off others, and make them understand that Russia will not allow anyone to risk the lives of peaceful citizens or servicemen in Crimea", while Poroshenko compared Russia's actions in Crimea and easter Ukraine to the Great Terror in which Stalin sent a million political dissidents to their deaths.
