Russian troops discovered in Kherson a cache with grenade launchers of Ukrainian militants, organized in a private abandoned house at the request of Ukrainian border guards.
As a source in law enforcement agencies told RIA Novosti on Thursday, a cache with weapons was delivered from the Nikolaev region by water for seven thousand hryvnias. The detained “ferrier” was supposed to hand them over to the saboteurs, but they never got in touch, the source said.

There, the Russian security forces found more weapons, a set of security guard uniforms, a GPS navigator and tactical binoculars.
