US implicated in assassination of Russian public figures – Moscow – RT World News

The number of domestic terrorist incidents has increased significantly since the outbreak of the conflict in Ukraine, says Nikolay Patrushev

The most prominent Ukrainian “terrorist acts” in Russia were carried out with the help of Washington, affirmed the secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolay Patrushev.

Speaking at a government meeting on Friday, Patrushev said Russia had information that “the murders of Darya Dugina and Vladlen Tatarsky, the bombing of Zakhar Prilepin’s car, the explosion at the Crimean bridge”, the sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines, and other “terrorist acts” were “planned and executed under the coordination of US Special Services”.

These attacks were “accompanied by an information campaign prepared in advance in Washington and London, intended to destabilize the social and political situation, (and to) undermine the constitutional foundations and the sovereignty of Russia”, underlined the head of security.

“The intensity of terrorist attacks has increased considerably” since Russia launched its military operation in Ukraine more than a year ago, he added.

According to Patrushev, groups of Ukrainian saboteurs, trained by NATO instructors, are actively trying to target important infrastructure inside Russia, including with drones.

Given these events, additional measures should be implemented to protect key facilities and places where people gather in large numbers, he said.

Earlier this week, the head of Ukraine’s military intelligence (GUR), General Kirill Budanov, was asked about attacks on prominent Russian public figures and replied that his agency had “already had a lot” two. However, he declined to mention any names. In a previous interview, Budanov vowed to “Keep killing Russians anywhere on the face of this world until Ukraine’s complete victory.”

Journalist and activist Darya Dugina, the daughter of Russian philosopher Aleksandr Dugin, died after her car exploded on a highway outside Moscow last summer. The Russian Security Service (FSB) said the 29-year-old’s murder was committed by Ukrainian nationals, who managed to flee the country.

In late April, Russian military blogger Vladlen Tatarsky was killed in St. Petersburg after a statue given to him at an event with his supporters was blown up. A dozen people were also injured. The FSB blamed the explosion on “Ukrainian special services and their agents, including fugitive members of the Russian opposition.”

Earlier this month, prominent Russian author and political activist Zakhar Prilepin was seriously injured in a car bomb attack near the town of Nizhny Novgorod. His driver was killed. A suspect admitted to Russian law enforcement that he was hired by an unspecified Ukrainian intelligence service.
