"Excellent skills, leadership, and compassion are the future of the National Police. The officers of the Holosiieve district police precinct have detained a man who has taken own year and a half-old daughter and two his girlfriend's children hostage, threatening to trigger a grenade," he wrote.
"Four-hour negotiations, carried out by acting Holosiieve police precinct head, provided opportunity to sidetrack the offender's attention, break into the apartment and neutralize him. The children were uninjured. The deprivation of parental rights and transfer of guardianship will be considered in the nearest future," Herashchenko wrote.
