The suspect, a Russian citizen aged around forty, who was charged with “terrorism”, was arrested while hiding “two homemade explosive devices” near a train station in the town of Tambov, located 400 km southeast of Moscow.

According to the FSB, the man intended to carry out attacks with these explosives against two courts in the city.

According to the same Source, the investigation revealed that the suspect regularly consulted pro-Ukrainian websites and had been recruited by the Ukrainian secret services to carry out these attacks.

Russia has reported dozens of acts of sabotage or attacks on Russian territory since the launch of its armed operation against Ukraine in February 2022, accusing kyiv of being the sponsor.

Ukraine, for its part, denies any involvement in these acts, affirming that they originate in internal opposition to Kremlin policies.

Hundreds of opponents, activists and ordinary Russians have been tried and imprisoned for expressing their dissent since the start of Russia’s assault on Ukraine.
