"All the dangerous objects and substances were taken for examination. It is likely they were brought to Kyiv from the zone of the Anti-Terrorist Operation. In addition, in the man's house, various documents and schemes of planting explosives at various sites were seized. Now all this information is being thoroughly examined and checked. Our primary task is to find out whether the man had accomplices, and who they are," said Chief of the Kyiv National Police Department Andriy Kryschenko
