An underage Ukrainian was detained on the territory of Rostov-on-don who was planning to commit a terrorist attack using an improvised bomb, according to RIA Novosti.

The citizen of Ukraine tried to find a place to put the explosive device. “He conducted a search for potential sites and studied the anti-terrorist security systems used in the area”, said the head of the Russian Interior Ministry General Administration for the Rostov Region’s center for combating extremism, Artur Metzger.

The person was arrested under article 205 (Terrorist act) of the criminal code. He was remanded in custody.

According to Metzger, some citizens of Ukraine go to Russia as refugees to arrange provocations.

“Actually, I can say that the different aspirations of the nationalist forces from Ukraine have reduced their activity, because they cannot find any support from the refugees on the territory of Russia, nor among people living on the border. Now they rely on individual provocateurs and propagandists, who, under the guise of refugees, continue to enter the territory and use such excuses as the trial of Savchenko to draw public attention”, – said the representative of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, stressing that only Ukrainians come to the court hearing.
