Terrorists are being recruited in large numbers on Russian social networking websites, according to the Ministry of External Affairs


Volunteer units are being formed on Russian social networking sites; for the purpose of participation in terrorist activity on Ukrainian territory.

This was stated on Friday by Yevhen Perebyinis – Director of the Information Policy Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine – at a briefing in Kyiv.  The report comes from Cenzor.NET, with a reference to Ukrinform.

“Recently, on social networking websites such as Vkontakte and Livejournal, there has been an increase in the activities of organizations and groups – as well as individuals from other states – aimed at carrying out subversive activities and operations against Ukraine”, he said.

In particular, Perebyinis  mentioned the activities of Russian groups such as ‘Russian National Unity’ and ‘Eurasian Youth Union’. He added that similar groups are also involved in forming volunteer units, to participate in terrorist sabotage within Ukraine.

“We call on the Russian authorities to take measures to stop these illegal actions”, said Perebynis.
