Ukraine strongly condemns terrorism in all its manifestations and forms and, accordingly, rejects the practice of using any type of terrorist action to stop the de-occupation of Crimea, the President said.
«It is Russia that has long been generously funded and actively supports terrorism in Ukraine, raising it to the level of state policy and in the occupied areas of Donbas and annexed Crimea, in the style of 30-ies of the last century», — said Poroshenko.
He also noted that Russia will not be able for his provocative statements to discredit Ukraine in the eyes of the international community to abolish the «well-deserved sanctions imposed by our partners.»

«I also expect that the Russian Federation ensure proper implementation of the safety aspects of the Minsk agreements, including through the use of mechanisms Normandy format», — he said.

As reported, the Federal security service of the Russian Federation of August 10 published an official statement in which it claims that it annexed Crimea prevented a series of terrorist acts, «prepared by the Main intelligence Department of the Ministry of defense of Ukraine, objects which identified critical elements of infrastructure and life support of the Peninsula».
On the eve of the people’s Deputy of Ukraine Anton Gerashchenko suggested that the Russian side blocked traffic on adminpraise with the annexed Crimea from 7 August to stop the attempted escape of deserters.
We will remind also that on August 8, media reported that in the Dzhankoysky area annexed Crimea are searching for four people of Slavic appearance in camouflage uniforms with chevrons of the diamond and the flag of the Russian Federation. Earlier it was reported about the attack with the shooting on the Russian military unit in Armyansk in Crimea. It was reported that in the attack one person died and three others injured.
A number of Crimean mass media spread information about introduction in the territory of the Peninsula of the plan «Fortress» for the investigation by five men in camouflage uniforms. Eyewitnesses said that in the Crimea on the main roads set up checkpoints, traffic police together with Riot police stop bus to inspect the passengers. The same checks are carried out on scheduled routes, in particular, in Simferopol.
In the night of Wednesday, August 10, at 4:30 the Russian side was unlocked checkpoint «Kalanchak» near Armyansk, which has not worked since August 7. The critical situation on the administrative border with the Peninsula arose early morning of 7 August, since the Russian side several times a day to change the skip mode on three KPVV, blocking them, then resuming in full or partially, only in one direction. The Russian side did not comment on the situation with a pass at adminpraise.
Today, August 10, Ukraine has refuted the statement of the FSB of the Russian Federation on the preparation of terrorist acts in the occupied Crimea. Secretary of the national security Council and defense of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov has called it a provocation and another element of the hybrid war and the attempt to aggravate the situation in the occupied territory. «Ukraine does not capture and does not return with force to its territory, and will not do. I can tell you for sure,» said adviser head of the SBU Yuriy tandit. «Such statements by the FSB are nothing but an attempt to justify the relocation and the aggressive actions of the military units of the Russian Federation on the territory temporarily occupied the Peninsula. Thus the representatives of the Russian special services are trying to divert the attention of the local population of the Crimea and the international community from the criminal actions of turning the Peninsula into an isolated military base,» — said the defense Ministry.
Russian President Vladimir Putin today, August 10, called meaningless meeting in the Normandy format on the sidelines of the G20 after reports of the alleged prevention of a terrorist attack in Crimea, organized by the Federal security service, the Ukrainian Ministry of defense. «Apparently, the people who took in due time the authorities in Kiev and continue to hold her back, instead of looking for ways of peaceful settlement, moved on to practice terror,» — said he said that in the Crimea from the Russian side killed two soldiers. «We, of course, by such things take place will not» — said Putin.
Meanwhile, the «power» occupied Crimea considered the statement of the FSB of the terrorist attacks in the Armenian Declaration of war.
Russia invaded and annexed Ukrainian Crimea, violating Ukraine data, in 1994 the guarantee of the sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as the beginning of the «hybrid war» against Ukraine at the Donbass, secretly, without a Declaration of war by introducing troops and equipment and covering the occupation of several districts of the two Eastern regions with the help of the puppet separatist organizations.
March 15, 2015 in an interview for the movie production of the TV channel «Russia» «Crimea. The way home», the Russian President Vladimir Putin first spoke about how in the spring of 2014 gave the orders for redeployment of the Armed forces of the Russian Federation on the sovereign territory of Ukraine. In particular, in order to, as he put it, «to disarm and block the Ukrainian troops during the occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea they were sent there elite units of the Russian Main intelligence Directorate (GRU).
Earlier media reported that Russia had previously issued a medal «For returning Crimea» with the date of the invasion, on 20 February 2014.
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has officially announced the beginning of the temporary occupation of Crimea on 20 February 2014. Western countries also do not recognize the annexation of Crimea and imposed a series of economic sanctions.
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko believes that the annexed Peninsula can be returned only by diplomatic means. «The optimal format to start such a mechanism, I consider the format of the «Geneva plus»: with the participation of our partners from the EU and the United States and possibly countries-signatories of the Budapest Memorandum». According to political scientist Alexander paly, the countries of the «plus» can be France and China.
As the coordinator of the campaign of blockade of the Crimea Lenur islyamov allow a military scenario of the return of the Peninsula.
