The subverts planned on committing terrorist acts in Kyiv and Kharkov.

Three Russian Federation nationals and three Ukrainians were detained in Kyiv and one – in Kharkiv. The eighth member of the subversive group – crime leader – resisted an arrest. He was using assault rifle and wounded two Alpha Unit officers. Later he was rendered harmless. One of the Alpha Unit officers, participant of multiple special operations in the ATO area, passed away in the hospital. Another one is in stable condition. At first a seven-year-old child was evacuated from the building under gunfire and only then the Alpha officers proceeded with assaulting an armed criminal.
