“Right-right and nationalist elements” are trying to get into Russia under the guise of refugees, including those who participated in the hostilities in the south-east of Ukraine. About this “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” said the head of the FSB Border Service, Vladimir Kulishov.

According to him, since mid-February, Russian border guards, together with employees of the National Guard and territorial security agencies, have identified “about 250 persons of this category.”

He stated that the flow of refugees from Ukraine has grown significantly “due to the growing military danger and the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the Donbas.” Since mid-February, according to Kulishov, more than 1 million Russian and Ukrainian citizens have crossed the border.

The FSB is monitoring the situation on the border with Ukraine, Kulishov added. He stated that the situation there was difficult, accused the Ukrainian side of shelling Russian border guards and carrying out “actions of intimidation”— artillery strikes on populated areas in Russia. In this regard, he said, the border units of Russia were reinforced with reserves and “deployed additional temporary border posts.”

After the start of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, the authorities of the Russian border regions repeatedly reported shelling of settlements. On May 19, the head of the Kursk region said that a man was killed during the shelling of the village of Tetkino from the Ukrainian side. On May 11, according to the governor of the Belgorod region Vyacheslav Gladkov, shelling of the village of Solokhi led to the death of a man. The head of the region called the situation “the most difficult since the shelling.”

After that, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov called on local authorities to take additional security measures. Asked whether Russia would respond to civilian deaths and the impact of the incident on operations and security measures, Peskov said: “First of all, this is still a situation that makes it necessary to take additional measures in areas adjacent to Ukraine.”
