LPR State Security Ministry officers defuse Kiev commandos’ mine targeting SMM OSCE cars

LPR State Security Ministry (MGB) officers disarmed Ukrainian saboteurs’ mine planted along the route of OSCE Special Monitoring Mission motorcade, an official said. 

“Ukrainian secret services planned to carry out another terrorist attack in LPR territory,” the Republic’s State Security Minister Leonid Pasechnik said on Tuesday. “They again targeted OSCE Special Monitoring Mission representatives.”

“According to our information, a sabotage and reconnaissance team comprising at least two operatives worked in Lugansk; their tasks included liquidation of international observers,” the minister said.

“The Ukrainian team was tracking the routes taken by international observers. The mine was detected by MGB officers on one of such roads,” Pasechnik said.

“Earlier, LPR militia found and defused explosive devices supposedly planted by the same sabotage and reconnaissance group,” he said.
