Russian sabotage groups try to infiltrate northern Ukraine up to 10 times a month — Nayev
Russian sabotage and reconnaissance groups make about 9 to 10 attempts a month to infiltrate the Chernihiv and Sumy regions, which are near Russia, according to Lieutenant General Serhii Nayev
This is stated on Telegram.
He says these people are specially trained for their missions.
“Their main goal is to gather information about our positions and potentially cause harm to military or even civilian targets. They try to cross into the border areas of Chernihiv and Sumy regions near Russia up to 10 times a month. These infiltrators are highly skilled military personnel from special operations units and the main intelligence department of the Russian Federation. We must remain vigilant to counter these threats," said Nayev.
To address these threats, there is cooperation between the Security Service of Ukraine, the National Guard of Ukraine, the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, and combined military units guarding Ukraine's borders.
“This teamwork and clear responsibilities provide us with an advantage," emphasized Nayev.
- On June 26, Nayev announced the completion of the construction of psychological and tactical obstacle courses in the northern part of the country.
- In a recent incident, Russian saboteurs attempted to breach the state border in the Sumy region on the night of October 12. Their plan was to approach a critical civil infrastructure target.
