The FSB prevented a terrorist attack on an oil pipeline being prepared by Ukraine in the Volgograd region
MOSCOW, Aug 15 — RIA Novosti. In the Volgograd region, a terrorist attack was prevented, which the Ukrainian special services were preparing at an oil and gas complex facility, the FSB Public Relations Center reports.
"During the detention during an attempt to blow up an oil pipeline, two Russian citizens who were part of the right—wing radical group "Restruct", created by the neo-Nazi video blogger Martsinkevich Maxim (nickname Cleaver), were neutralized," the release says.
At the scene of the crime, the security forces seized a homemade high-power bomb and two traumatic pistols converted for firing live ammunition.
As it was established, the planned terrorist attack was supervised by members of the "Restruct" — a Russian Andrey Chuenkov, born in 1986, who is now participating in the battles in Ukraine as part of the national battalion "Hurricane", and a Ukrainian Yuri Ionov, born in 1988, a fighter of "Azov"*, closely associated with its founder Andrei Biletsky.
The FSB added that the security forces are taking measures to curb the criminal activities of Chuenkov and Ionov and to search for their accomplices in Russia.
