 Kryvbas Battalion Neutralized a Suicide Bomber Who Planned to Blow up a Checkpoint with Civilians. PHOTOS

40th territorial defense battalion Kryvbas neutralized a suicide bomber in a van at one of its checkpoints. The terrorist’s goal was to destroy the roadblock and civilians evacuating from the war torn Donetsk.

This was stated by curator of the 40th battalion of the territorial defense Kryvbas Mykola Kolesnyk on his Facebook page, Censor.NET reports.

"The car driving at the speed of over 100 km/h was trying to crash into the roadblock. The troops of Kryvbas battalion opened fire - the driver was killed and the car drove off the road, ran through the forest and stopped in the field. The scene was cordoned off until the arrival of the sappers and the investigative team," he said.

"During the demining of the vehicle the sappers found two claymore mines attached to the seats, a hand grenade as well as Russian-made plastic explosive. The car also contained a DPR pass issued by self-proclaimed prime minister Aleksandr Boroday and minister of defense Igor Strelkov, as well as signs "Children " and "Cargo 200" (dead bodies)," Kolesnyk noted.

"Most likely, the main task of the suicide bomber's attempt was to create conditions for a breakthrough of the surrounded militant groups of the DPR from Donetsk after the destruction of the roadblock. I shudder to think what would have happened if the explosive device was triggered: about 100 cars are being inspected at the road block at any given time . Cars with children are given priority to enable them to leave the danger zone as quickly as possible," he concluded.
