The SBU reacted to the worthless statements of the Russian Foreign Ministry

The call from Russia’s Foreign Ministry to arrest Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) head, Vasyl Malyuk, for accusing Ukrainian involvement in the ISIS attack on Crocus City Hall is both baseless and cynical, the SBU told NV on March 31.

"While invoking international law, particularly the Convention against Terrorism, the Russian Foreign Ministry overlooks that Putin himself faces international arrest warrants - most notably for abducting Ukrainian children, and that a trial awaits him at the Hague Tribunal,” the press service said.

The Russian Foreign Ministry made its cynical statement about "terrorism" on the anniversary of the liberation of Bucha, where Russia’s occupying forces became famous worldwide for their atrocities. That’s why “any words from the Russian Foreign Ministry are worthless,” the SBU said.

Russia can only warrant attention to its statement by announcing its defeat in the war against Ukraine and withdrawing its troops from Ukrainian territory, the SBU said.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry officially accused Ukraine of involvement in recent “terrorist attacks” inside Russia, including the Crocus City Hall shootings.

Moscow fabricated "traces of the recent terrorist attacks lead to Ukraine" to tie SBU boss Malyuk to the events.

Russia has been after the SBU chief for a long time, accusing him of involvement in the sabotage of the Crimean Bridge in Oct. 2022.
