Ukraine’s SBU predicts Russian-backed murder to justify full-scale invasion

The invasion of Ukraine’s eastern regions is made in Moscow, the Security Service of Ukraine said on April 16, and they came for blood.

The state agency, known as the SBU, says that a special reconnaissance and operations unit within the Moscow-based 45th Detached Reconnaissance Regiment of Russian Airborne Troops and military intelligence units from southern Russia are leading the insurgency.

Their objective is to “cause bloodshed on the streets of our cities” and kill “100-200” Ukrainians to provide a pretext for Russia to mass an invasion of eastern Ukraine, said Vitaliy Naida, a high-ranking member of the SBU’s counter-intelligence department.
