Members of Donbas trade blockade in Lysychansk said that the police is deliberately trying to provoke them and to find at least some cause for detention. This was reported on headquarters of the blockade Facebook page.
"Yesterday, on March 3, after the departure of major part of participants, to the blockade redoubts in Lysychansk came reinforced police squads of Luhansk region. They demanded to give access to the premises to conduct a search. According to officers, they have received information that supposedly all the rooms are crammed with weapons. Since there was no legal basis for the search of premises, we ddn't allow them to do this, but allowed two representatives of the police to enter the premises together with members of headquarters. As always, nothing illegal was found tgere", the report says.
The next attempt to exert pressure police made this morning, on March 4. Arriving at the redoubt, law enforcement officers said that the bridge, under which activists are located, is allegedly mined. After examination in the bushes they found a substance, similar to TNT, a grenade and ammunition - all in a disassembled state.
After inspection of the bridge police offered to ATO veterans to leave redoubt and participants of the blockade refused to to this.
