Quote: “The 5th Directorate of the FSB continues working in the territory of Ukraine. There have been attempts to engage criminal lords in its activities, especially in Kharkiv Oblast. At the moment, they are in the United Arab Emirates…
I want to address the young people who are engaged in this issue. Guys, I strongly recommend you stop this because when you come back to your homeland, if you even have such an opportunity, trust me, you will all be incarcerated. Today, it is necessary to protect your country and not play with FSB members to destabilise our situation.”
Details: Danilov states that the Ukrainian government is monitoring this situation.
He has noted that Russia is preparing for an offensive, and it is not a surprise for Ukraine.
Quote: “We realise that on short notice, in a month, a month and a half, or two, they will start acting.”
