“Negotiations with the man are ongoing.
“Law enforcement officers and rescuers are working on the spot.
“If the man refuses to stop the offense voluntarily, police measures prescribed by the law will be taken against him,’’ the Ukrainian Ministry of Interior Affairs wrote on Facebook. (Sputnik/NAN)
