    The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces denied on Wednesday that Kiev was allegedly involved in the preparation of terrorist attacks in Russia's Crimea.

    KIEV (Sputnik) — The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) said earlier on Wednesday that it had eliminated a spy ring organized by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry in Crimea, detaining both Russian and Ukrainian nationals involved in preparing terrorist attacks on the peninsula.

    "The developments in this incident started last Sunday and immediately social networks in Crimea circulated rumors alleging that some saboteur groups had infiltrated Crimea from the Ukrainian side and carried out some missions," General Staff's spokesman Vladislav Seleznev said in an interview with Radio Svoboda.

    "Any claims of this kind are simply provocative acts," Seleznev stressed.
