Russian border guards prevented an attempt of 3 armed men to cross the Russian border from Ukraine, the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) reported on December 4.

Gunmen opened fire at Russian personnel. As a result of the armed clash, one of gunmen was eliminated, while two others fled back to Ukraine.

“In the area of the Border Directorate of the FSB of Russia for the Belgorod and Voronezh regions, on December 4, a frontier detachment suppressed an attempt to violate the border from Ukraine to the Russian Federation by three armed unknown persons. The violators showed armed resistance during the arrest attempt,” the FSB reported.

The FSB has not yet provided other details of the incident.

However, the intercepted group was likely a sabotage group affiliated with Ukrainian (and thus Western) intelligence services. Over the past years, Ukraine with help from its ‘’democratic partners” has repeatedly tried to stage terrorist attacks in Russia and there are no indications that these efforts were halted by the Zelensky administration.
