She said that the detained "citizen P." was involved in coordinating the Crimean branch of the Russian Unity Party and members of the intelligence and sabotage group of the Main Intelligence Department of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, headed by Strelkov, and organized seizures of administrative buildings in Artemivsk and Sloviansk in Donetsk region. Ostapenko added that this person was also responsible for the supply of firearms to individuals who were involved in extremist activities. She noted that from October 7 to October 20 this man was in Crimea, where he received respective instructions with the participation of Russian secret services and diplomats of the Russian Consulate General in Simferopol on further work to destabilize the situation in the southeastern regions of Ukraine. "The second detainee is Russian citizen S. who entered Ukraine using a Ukrainian passport as a cover document," she said.
