The footage shows that at first the armed Roman Skrypnyk is holding a policeman hostage - a police captain, who found the fugitive tonight in one of the uninhabited houses of the village of Opishnya and was taken hostage.
Judging by the video, police officers persuaded Skrypnyk to release the hostage, after which a sniper fired at him. The hostage policeman managed to jump away from the wounded terrorist in a matter of seconds. After that, the "Poltava terrorist" is blown up by his own grenade and is thrown aside by a blast wave.
Нічні події в Опишні. На жаль, знову неадекватна поведінка "полтавського терориста", який кілька днів переховувався. Внаслідок злагодженої роботи поліцейських - зловмисник був ліквідований снайпером і підірвався на власній гранаті.— Arsen Avakov (@AvakovArsen) August 1, 2020

As we reported before, Police special forces eliminated the Poltava terrorist Roman Skrypnyk, whom law enforcement officers had been searching for a week.
"On August 1, at about 02.00, on the outskirts of the village of Opishnya, Zinkivsky district, during the search for Skripnyk, the head of the Zenkivsky police department, the police captain, entered one of the uninhabited houses and found the criminal," Gerashchenko said.
