ULAN-UDE, September 6 (Itar-Tass) — An abandoned KamAZ truck loaded with 40 artillery shells was found in the Trans-Baikal region near the village of Mogoitui on Tuesday. “The search for the vehicle was announced by the command of a military unit as it was stolen,” the village police department told Itar-Tass. However, according to a preliminary version, the incident was caused by the usual carelessness.
Presumably, the driver soldier drove the KamAZ truck with the hazardous cargo from the military unit to the village on personal business. However, the truck got stuck in the mud. He was afraid to report the incident to the unit. As a result, the hijacking version appeared.
“The investigation will show if it is right or wrong,” the police noted.
