SBU Head Vasyl Hrytsak does not rule out the “Russian trace” in plotting terrorist attacks in France during Euro 2016 in June, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to UNIAN.

“We came across the version of the ‘Russian trace’ almost at the end, when the Frenchman, who was later detained in Ukraine, offered his ‘associates,’ with whom he was in contact in the framework of a special operation set up by the SBU, several thousand euros so that a Ukrainian citizen would accompany the cargo (weapons and explosives) in the territory of Europe,” Hrytsak said at a press conference in Kyiv on Monday.

According to him, this was a key moment, and “that is why we believe that this can be a ‘set-up’ of the Russian special services.”
