The man who captured the bank in Kyiv and threatened to commit a terrorist attack could be the citizen of Uzbekistan. Deputy Interior Minister of Ukraine Anton Herashchenko said so in a commentary for the press.
The suspect's name, he said, is Sukhrob Rakhmanovich Karimov, who was born in March 1988.
The Ukrainian official added that, judging by his correspondence in social networks, the suspect could be mentally unstable.
As we reported earlier, as it was stated by Deputy Interior Minister Anton Herashchenko: the incident occurred in a branch of JSC Universal Bank, which is located in the above-mentioned business center.
A young man went in and said that he had a bomb in his backpack. The bank employees left the building, and the head of the branch stayed inside at his own request.
It was noted that the representatives of the Interior Ministry wanted to find "a peaceful solution" to this issue but would be prepared to respond with force.
Such a scenario was applied when Roman Skrypnyk, former ex-convict, took a law enforcement officer hostage in Poltava.
