Sumy region: SBU prevents provocations during mass actions
SBU prevented provocations during mass actions on the eve of the Independence Day of Ukraine.
Special service officers under the procedural guidance of the prosecutor's office detained a 19-year-old Sumy resident - a member of a radical youth group who, together with his accomplices, planned to detonate ammo and explosives in crowded public areas.
Law enforcement officers seized F-1 grenade, ammunition and explosives at the places of offenders’ residence. The investigation is currently checking the version of the preparation of provocative actions during mass events, including in religious buildings, as well as during celebrations on the occasion of the Flag Day of Ukraine and holding the concert "KVARTAL-FEST" on August 23 in the Sumy region.
The notice of suspicion of committing crimes is prepared.
The pre-trial investigation is ongoing.
