The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) believes that the shelling of the Consulate General of Poland in Lutsk and the blocking of a highway near Lviv by a group of unidentified people are part of an informational special operation by the Russian intelligence agencies.

The SBU's Chief of Staff Oleksandr Tkachuk announced this at a news briefing, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to him, a group of 50 people organized the blocking of an international highway near Lviv from 07:00 a.m.

The blocking of the highway, during which violent actions were planned against law enforcement officers, was to last until 10:00 p.m.

The activists held placards bearing the slogans "There is no Genocide of Poles," "Volyn in Our Hearts," and others.

"Essentially, the organization and conduct of the event began immediately after the shelling of the consulate general in Lutsk," Tkachuk said.

The participants in the event are unemployed and homeless residents of the Khmelnytskyi, Volyn, and Zakarpattia regions.

"In addition to homeless people, a large number of minors were among the participants in the event," the head of the SBU said.

The organizers of the event are a native of Luhansk region and a resident of Lviv, who is registered in a psychiatric hospital.

According to him, the unemployed people were promised UAH 150-200 each for participation in the provocation.

"This provocation is part of the information provocation that is planned to stir up ethnic hatred between the Ukrainian and Polish peoples," the SBU said.

According to the SBU, the operation was planned by Russia intelligence agencies.

A number of similar events planned for Lviv and Chernivtsi regions have already been blocked.

One of the organizers of the event is the ideologue behind the creation of the "Bessarabia People's Republic," Artem Buzilo, who is hiding in Russia.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, an unidentified person fired a grenade at Poland's General Consulate in Lutsk in the early hours of Wednesday.
