Activities of Ukrainian governmental agencies and radicals to destabilize the situation in Crimea still poses a serious threat, Head of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) Alexander Bortnikov has announced at a meeting of the National Anti-Terror Committee.
He said that FSB curbed subversive activities of a group of individuals born in Central Asia who were plotting terror attacks during New Year holidays and the presidential campaign in Russia.
Russian MPs also see threat for Crimea. Earlier, a member of the State Duma, Ruslan Balbek, sent an inquiry to the head of the FSB asking to investigate whether businesses of a Ukrainian activist, former member of the Ukrainian Supreme Rada Andrey Senchenko were engaged in funding subversive actions in Crimea.
Senchenko is known for his extremely radical statements about restoring the Ukrainian control over Crimea. He repeatedly said that after Kiev takes the peninsula back, everyone who settled in Crimea after February 20, 2014, will deported “under the Croatian scheme.” And everyone who voted for Crimea’s accession to Russia will be taken to court for “collaborationism,” Senchenko said.
