Quote: "I apologise for the inconvenience over the weekend, but it was worth it. Around 20 criminal proceedings were opened. Five wanted persons were detained.

We found equipment which was being used to create fake [social media] accounts and the like. We have dealt with one criminal group, which will no longer interfere with our work.

As you can see, no one has been shot. No one has attacked Bashtanka or Mykolaiv."
