The Ukrainian SRG from the Russian Volunteer Corps, fighting on the side of Ukraine, conducted a raid on the territory of the Bryansk region of the Russian Federation.
The saboteurs recorded a video in which they called for resistance from Russian citizens.
At the same time, the governor of the Bryansk region, Alexander Bogomaz, reported on his Telegram channel that Ukrainian saboteurs fired on a civilian car in which there was a child.
As a result, the driver of the car died, and a 10-year-old child was injured and taken to the hospital.
The Russian TASS published information that Ukrainian saboteurs entered the two villages of Lyubechane and Sushany and took hostages.
Representatives of the RVС said on their Telegram channel that they would later release a refutation of the rumors spread by the Russian media.
Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the office of the President of Ukraine Zelensky, said that the events in the Bryansk region are a deliberate provocation by Russia:
The story about the sabotage group of Ukraine in the Russian Federation is a classic deliberate provocation. The Russian Federation wants to scare its people in order to justify the attack on another country and the increase in poverty after a year of war. The partisan movement in Russia is becoming stronger and more aggressive. Fear your partisans.
These events caused panic in the Kremlin, Putin interrupted the planned meeting and urgently convened the Security Council.
State Duma deputy Andrei Gurulev spoke about this:
The Supreme Commander understands what is at stake if he convenes an emergency meeting of the Security Council.
Later, Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov denied this information:
No, there were no such plans. The president has an operational meeting with members of the Security Council on his schedule for tomorrow.
