In Kiev, a special operation continues on the metro bridge: the police are negotiating with an unknown person who threatens to undermine the bridge. A man’s request is for a meeting with Arsen Avakov.
About this writes “MFN”.
At around 2 p.m. on June 1, the national police received a message concerning the operation of the metro bridge. After the message, the police blocked traffic on the bridge in both directions, called all the concerned services and negotiated with the stranger.
As you can see, there is a man with a gas bottle on the bridge: he requests a meeting with the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov – otherwise he will blow up the bridge.
At this point, the man was already detained. According to journalist Max Nazarov, the stranger was arrested. Shots were heard during the detention. Now the bridge is being tested by bomb engineers.
Note that the metro bridge had already been “mined” earlier: in September 2019, an unknown person also threatened to blow up the bridge. After the detention, it turned out that he just wanted to get attention.
Recall that earlier we wrote where they detained an inmate for having mined the metro bridge.
