The 37-year-old man, who was not identified, carried a Russian passport and was detained jointly by the police and the SBU.
The Russian Embassy in Kyiv did not
immediately comment on the detention.
“The danger of the detainee is that
he’s not just a regular guy, he’s a trained, professional saboteur,”
Nalyvaichenko said. “And this individual walked about the land of
miners with explosives and set up diversion groups to prepare
explosions in public places where masses of people had gathered.”
