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.

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.
