"The scoundrel, realizing that the exposure of his illegal activities is inevitable, in response to the reading of the decree, he fired two shots from the sawn-off shotgun, after which he took out an object similar to an F-1 grenade and began to threaten law enforcement officers," the message says.

It is noted that help arrived at the scene of the incident. As a result of the negotiations, the attacker decided to surrender. No one was hurt as a result of the shooting.

"The police and the prosecutor's office are now imputing to him not only the production and trade of drugs, but also a threat to law enforcement officers," Deputy Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko said.
