MOSCOW, April 27 (MENA) - Two Russian citizens were detained as they allegedly prepared to sabotage a transportation infrastructure facility in Russia’s Belgorod region near the Ukrainian border, The Wall Street Journal quoted Russia’s federal security services as saying Wednesday.
According to the agency, an investigation revealed that the suspects were supporters of Ukrainian nationalists and had sent data about Russian servicemen participating in Moscow’s military’s operation in Ukraine to the Kyiv-based “Peacemaker,” a website that publishes the personal information of people who commit crimes against Ukraine and the country’s national security.
The federal security services said the suspects, who weren't immediately identified, confessed to their crime. The Wall Street Journal couldn't independently verify the agency’s report of the alleged attempted sabotage.
Meanwhile, authorities in the regions of Kursk and Voronezh that also lie close to Ukraine, reported Wednesday that overnight Russian air-defense systems had successfully intercepted and destroyed Ukrainian drones, preventing them from causing any casualties or damage to infrastructure, they said.
