The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) confirmed March 16 the arrest of a group of Russians in the Zaporizhzhia (Zaporozhye) region of Ukraine. The men were armed with firearms, explosives and unspecified 'special technical means'.
This follows the March 14 arrest near Kherson, Ukraine of several Russians dressed black uniforms with no insignia, armed with AKS-74 assault rifles and in possession of numerous ID cards under various names. One of which was an ID card of Military Intelligence Directorate of the Russian armed forces; commonly known as 'Spetsnaz'.
These men were being guided by an ethnic Russian Ukrainian in what appears to be reconnaissance of the 3 Ukrainian army divisions deployed in Kherson.
Spetsnaz commandos operating in eastern Ukraine would have the missions encompassing general ground reconnaissance of Ukrainian army units. They would also have missions conducting provocateur operations dressed in civilian attire, passing themselves off as local ethnic Russians to stir trouble between Ukrainians and local Russians, organize and provide arms to local militants as happened in Donetsk on March 11.
An 23-year-old 'Russian spy' has been detained in Ukraine amid claims Vladimir Putin is seeking to destabilise the country. Ukrainian authorities say Maria Koleda was on her ninth mission to the ex-Soviet state, wounding three people with firearms and training two armed subversive groups. The detention comes on the fourth day of a stand-off in two cities, as Ukraine's government warned it was prepared to use force against pro-Russian activists who barricaded themselves inside government buildings and begged Vladimir Putin for back-up.

March 14, 2014, a Russian citizen heading to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea was apprehended at 10 a.m. near a temporary checkpoint in Chonhar. A personal search revealed that the man had the AKS-74 assault rifle with 5 magazines loaded with live ammunitions. He was wearing a black uniform of a special force officer without insignia. The foreigner possessed several identity cards issued on different names. The Security Service of Ukraine acquired a document confirming that the detainee worked for the
Military Intelligence of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. It is established that the Russian citizen was performing espionage and subversive tasks in Kherson region. The SSU Office in Kherson region carries out urgent detective-investigative actions to identify his accomplices. Relative documents have been referred to the European Court of Human Rights in addition to the evidence base of Declaration 209558/14, Ukraine vs. Russia, of March 13, 2014. The SSU will ensure that all the facts of illegal and dangerous activities, which violate the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, are passed to the European Court of Human Rights and the UN Security Council.
Russia’s intelligence agency has infiltrated almost every level of Ukraine’s government, particularly its clandestine service, since the ouster of pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovich, making it extremely difficult for the United States and its European allies to keep secrets from the Kremlin as it continues to destabilize the fragile region, current and former U.S. officials told TheBlaze.
Andrei Illarionov, formerly Vladimir Putin’s top economic advisor (and personal envoy to the G8) , has warned in an interview with Ukrainian television that Putin has already declared war on Kiev. Putin’s war is being conducted by Russian Spetsnaz (special operations) forces and KGB (now called FSB) agents and is aimed at toppling the pro-Western government in Kiev. The Spetsnaz forces’ orders include the sowing of civil unrest throughout Ukraine via strikes, demonstrations, staged incidents, and street battles. Putin’s subversive forces will also gin up neo-Nazi incidents with Nazi regalia and Swastikas on full display. Their orders include as well the deliberate killing of Russian soldiers and of ethnic Russian civilians to prove the hatred and extremism of radical Ukrainian nationalists. These orders come from Putin himself. Their goal is to create an image of intolerable chaos and loss of civil authority to justify a Russian takeover of all Ukraine. Putin’s goal is the destruction of pro-Western authority in Ukraine, the total humiliation of the West, and a makeover of the geopolitical balance.

Russians in Ukraine form the largest ethnic minority in the country, and the community forms the largest single Russian diaspora in the world. In the 2001 Ukrainian census, 8,334,100 identified as ethnic Russians (17.3% of the population of Ukraine), this is the combined figure for persons originating from outside of Ukraine and the autochthonous population declaring Russian ethnicity
