"During the investigative actions, [the SBU] confiscated promotional materials aimed at the violent change and toppling of the constitutional order and seizure of power as well as things looking like a Stechkin pistol with a silencer and 120 bullets to it," the SBU press centre said.

According to SBU chief, the Kremlin virus of paid "coups d'etat" found yet another "organism" in Ukraine.
