Ukraine’s security service SBU said on Wednesday it had captured a Russian military intelligence hit squad of eight members, two Russians and six Ukrainians.
The squad was responsible for the attempted murder of a candidate for the presidential election.
The group had planted a bomb under the car of the Ukrainian military spy, candidate for the presidential election, which exploded while being planted, badly injuring one of the squad members.

There was no immediate reaction from Russia.
The SBU released a video of the same incident which showed a man placing the bomb under a car before a big explosion.
