CHITA, October 25 (Itar-Tass) - Unknown perpetrators in Chita on Friday attempted to set on fire the building of the Ingodinsky police precinct and office of a private security service for the Ingodinsky district, the press service of RF Interior Ministry’s (MVD) department for the Trans-Baikal Kraiy Yevgeny Zherebtsov told Itar -Tass.
“At around 04:00, local time (22:00 MSK Thursday), unidentified persons threw incendiary bottles to the buildings of the police precinct and private security service. The buildings sustained minor damage. The personnel quickly liquidated the fire,” Zherebtsov said.
