DISINFO: Ukraine was staging a terrorist attack before Putin's visit


People who are in contact with Ukrainian special services are trying to transport explosives [to Crimea] through Perekop. There was even an attempt to stage a terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge a week before the arrival of the President of the Russian Federation.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine allegedly supporting terrorism. See previous disinformation narratives alleging that Ukraine supplies weapons to terrorists in Syria and that Ukraine is preparing an attack on nuclear facilities in Russia.
