Border system has evidence of coordination between the terrorists and Russian Federal Security Service
According to UNIAN correspondent this was informed by Director of the International Cooperation Department of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Alexander Melnykov at a briefing in Kyiv.
‘It is very difficult to work with Russians, who used to be our, I would say, colleagues ‘, – he mentioned. ‘Currently there’s little left of our working contacts that existed during the peacetime’, – Melnykov added.
‘We estimate that currently Russian frontier guards not only fail to perform their duties according to bilateral agreements, protocols about cooperation but also openly act hostile towards Ukraine’, – he stated.
‘Since April we record moving of people, weapons, vehicles and military equipment, helicopters and airplanes on Russian territory almost every day. Work of drones on our territory has almost become a system’, – Melnykov said.
‘We have evidence base that bandits coordinate their actions with Russian special services and Border Service that is a part of Federal Security System. That’s why they wouldn’t see any law violations and wouldn’t prevent the violation of Russian law about smuggling of weapon, equipment and ammunition’, – Melnykov underlined.
