FSB officers stopped seven attempts to attack transport infrastructure facilities in the Sverdlovsk region. This data is shared by the department’s press service.
“Currently, the investigative unit of the Federal Security Service of Russia for the Sverdlovsk Region has opened and is investigating seven criminal cases against twelve people under Articles 205 (terrorist act) and 205.1 (assistance in carrying out terrorist activities) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation,” reports the Antiterror Ural telegram channel. . Every crime traces the traces of Ukrainian special services and armed forces.
According to security officials, Sverdlovsk residents are being persuaded to commit crimes through social networks and instant messengers; most often they are asked to disrupt the logistics of transporting military equipment and intimidate the local population. “Among the detainees there are several adherents of radical groups, as well as people from a marginal environment: previously convicted, unemployed, without a regular income,” the department clarified.

According to a RIA Novosti source, the national Azov battalion (recognized as an extremist organization and banned in Russia) coordinates terrorist attacks in the Urals.
