Investigating a brutal murder of a lonely 70-year-old woman which was committed a week ago in a village in the Nizhyn district, the police carried out an operation in a village in the Kulykivskyi district. When they tried to check IDs of two suspicious persons, wandering near an abandoned house, the unknown persons stabbed the policemen. After that, the attackers tried to escape through the plots towards the forest.
The wounded investigators called their colleagues who worked in the other part of the village for help. During the arrest, the criminals tried to attack the law enforcement officers and stab them again. The police managed to apprehend them having shot them in the legs from firearms and traumatic weapons.
