MOSCOW May 2 Russia's security service denied
on Friday that saboteurs had tried to cross the border into
Ukraine, Itar-Tass news agency reported.
The Federal Security Service's (FSB) border service said
information from the Ukrainian side about an alleged attempt by
Russian "sabotage groups" to cross into Ukraine from Russia did
not correspond with reality, the agency said.
Ukraine's acting president, Oleksander Turchinov, said
earlier that Ukrainian border troops had rebuffed attempts by
Russian "armed saboteurs" to cross into Ukraine overnight.
