“Such statement by FSB is nothing but an attempt to justify acts of aggression and redeployment of military units of the Russian Federation in the territory of the temporarily occupied peninsula,” Ukrainian MoD said in a statement published on the official site, Joinfo.ua reports.

“In this way, the representatives of the Russian special services are trying to divert the attention of the local residents and the international community from the criminal activity to transform the peninsula into an isolated military base,” said the Ministry.

“Crimea has always been and remains the Ukrainian land, and the population of the peninsula are citizens of Ukraine,” said the Ukrainian MoD.

It should be recalled that earlier the Russian FSB has said it prevented terrorist attacks in Crimea prepared by the Ukrainian intelligence, according to the Russian TASS news agency.
