As the Federal Security Service of Russia clarified, the goal of the Ukrainian saboteurs was to commit a number of terrorist acts at the country’s military and energy facilities.
During the operational combat activities carried out in the Navlinsky district of the Bryansk region, two militants were eliminated, while five more were detained. Three of them were wounded
