Russian security services plan to organize protest actions on the Independence Day of Ukraine near the Verkhovna Rada to discredit the legislative body. Among the participants is the Lay People association run by the UOC-MP.

This is reported by Religiyna Pravda, citing Hromadske.

The MPs were caught in the epicenter of Russia's information and psychological special operation (IPSO). This is stated in the materials of the security service, which were recently submitted to the Parliament, and Hromadske also received from its own sources.

Officials warn that Russians plan to organize protest actions on the Independence Day of Ukraine near the Verkhovna Rada in order to discredit the legislative body.

"On August 24, 022, an initiative group of citizens intends to organize a protest action nearby the Verkhovna Rada to demand that Ukrainian MPs and their family members be sent to the war zone. The video with these calls is shared on TikTok. Among the radical calls is to shoot deputies," the materials that the security service handed over to the parliamentarians say.

The video mentions a petition registered on the President's website. In it, the author Alina Olegivna Korchmagina calls for sending MPs, their wives and children to fight. According to the security service, Korchmagina is registered in the city of Volchansk, Kharkiv region, which is now under occupation. Previously, the author of the petition did not show any public activity, the security service notes.

The article also says that representatives of the so-called anti-vaccinators and the organization "Lay People", which are close to the UOC-MP, are involved in the initiative.

Hromadske appealed to the SBU with a question about whether the security service had information about possible protests near the parliament on August 24. The request was answered that the SBU does not have such information.
