But during the inspection of the premises and the territory adjacent to the school, police officers did not find any suspicious objects or substances.

“After interviewing witnesses of the incident, we identified the individual who made the false call. At the same time, we received information that after this call, the man opened gas burners at home and closed the windows, after which he left in an unknown direction. He told his mother about the intention to blow up the house," the head of the Svyatoshinsky police department Serhiy Chernyshev said.

Employees of the State Emergency Situations Service and the gas service cut off the gas and evacuated residents. The attacker was detained several hours later. It turned out to be a man who, according to the conclusion of psychiatrists, has mental health problems; he was born in 1978.

Criminal cases were opened under the articles "Deliberately false reporting of a threat to the safety of citizens, destruction or damage to property objects" (Part 1 of Article 259 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine), "Unfinished attempt at intentional destruction or damage of property" (Part 3 of Article 15, Part 2, Article 194 of the Criminal Code).
