Frenchman ‘planned Euro 2016 attacks’, Ukraine’s SBU says

Ukraine’s SBU security agency has said that a Frenchman detained last month with a large cache of arms was planning mass attacks on the Euro 2016 football tournament, which begins on Friday.

The man, identified by French media as Gregoire M, 25, was arrested on the Ukrainian border with Poland.

SBU chief Vasyl Hrytsak said the man had been planning 15 attacks and was driven by ultra-nationalist views.

    How does the BBC get a “far-right” “ultra-nationalist” out of some guy who worked on a French co-operative as a cattle inseminator? Desn’t “co-operative” indicate a leftist lifestyle and outlook on life? Notice the that the BBC also identified the “far-right activist” who sold the weapons used in the Jewish supermarket attack, but they seemingly were unable to identify and name the Islamic terrorists involved. By the use of Weasel words one comes to know the enemy.

      Yes… the first name “Gregoire” they can tell us; the last can only be revealed as “M.”

      Can you think of a name that starts with “M?”

        Mohammed perhaps?

        The BBC article names him as Gregoire Moutaux and the video shows him as an average Frenchman, nothing mohammed like.

    • There is something smelly about this.
