Ukraine's SBU plots provocations in Odessa on May 9

Head of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) Valentin Nalivaychenko has given the SBU department in Odessa several days to curb pro-Russian protests in the city, the RIA Novosti news agency reports quoting a source in Ukrainian law enforcement bodies.

"The head of the SBU department for the Odessa region has received Nalivaichenko’s order to create conditions within days for a special operation to suppress pro-Russian elements in Odessa," the source said.

The SBU is planning to plant its "moles" among the protesters to provoke riots, including on May 9, and to forge evidence of alleged Russian arms supplies through Orthodox churches in the Odessa region, the source said.

Once the riots are provoked, the source said, Right Sector militants, posing as outraged city residents, and specially trained riot police will be brought in to quell them.
