Locals from Kniazhychi near Kyiv told reporters that in the village on the eve of a deadly shootout occurred several cases of robberies involving men in police uniforms. In particular, it reported Vesti referring to one of the local security guard.
This also writes former adviser to Interior Minister Kostyantyn Stogniy on Facebook.
"Locals told such versions to our reporters that I do not dare to say before checking them out. The most common and cultural - is that the policemen themselves were thieves in locals' homes. And State Security Service detained them. KORD team came over to defend the detainees. But Security Service wanted to deliver them to the police department.
After an exchange of "pleasantries" and bullying someone first lost his nerve. I think it was Security Service because they were 100% right and and had nothing to fear. "- wrote Stogniy.
