Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) has announced the detention in the Republic of Crimea of members of Ukraine's ultra-nationalistic Right Sector suspected of plotting to stage acts of sabotage and terrorist attacks in several cities of the peninsula. 

"The main goal of this criminal group was to stage acts of sabotage and terrorist attacks in the cities of Simferopol, Yalta and Sevastopol, as well as subsequently destroy a number of vital facilities such as railway bridges and power transmission lines," FSB said in a press release, seen by Interfax on Friday.
