Russian murder plot foiled

Ukraine’s domestic security service has arrested two people allegedly working for Russian intelligence services who planned to kill Ukraine’s defence minister and the head of its military intelligence agency.

The security service of Ukraine foiled the alleged plot by the Russian GRU military intelligence agency to use a sabotage group to carry out three murders including that of a prominent Ukrainian activist, the agency said in a statement on Monday.

There was no immediate reaction to Ukraine’s statement from Moscow or Russian state-run media.

The suspects, one a resident of the eastern Luhansk region held by Russia-backed separatists and the other a resident of Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, were promised up to $150,000 (£124,000) by Russian handlers for the murder of each of their targets, the SBU said.
