The Russian Federal Security Services (FSB) have confiscated a number of weapons, including an explosive-laden vehicle, a machine gun, several grenade launchers, magnetic mines, and other arms, which were meant for the terror attack.
The FSB arrested five members of the sabotage group, organised by the Ukrainan Security Services (SBU) to carry out a terror attack on Russia-controlled territory, an official statement read.

"Amid the special military operation to demilitarise and de-Nazify Ukraine, the Federal Security Service foiled the activities of a Ukrainian sabotage and terrorist group, which, on the instructions of SBU employees, was preparing a terrorist attack against a Russian humanitarian convoy and Russian military personnel using a car bomb", the FSB said.

The arrested operatives were charged with a preparation of a terrorist attack, the statement added. In a video, published by the FSB, one of the detainees confessed that they had implanted 8 kilos of plastic explosives in the car's bumper and planned to detonate it 5 metres away from the convoy.
