MOSCOW, May 19. /TASS/. Financial gain was the motive behind the attack on a bank in eastern Moscow on Wednesday, the press service of Russia’s Investigative Committee told TASS.
"The investigators are considering financial motive of committing the crime as the main one," the press service said.
The identity of a person who attacked a branch of the Moscow Credit Bank has been established. "He is a native of the Moscow Region, Alexei Ukhin, born in 1987."
The attacker was formerly convicted for robbery, Moscow police said. An investigation into all circumstances of the incident is ongoing. A criminal case has been launched into hostage taking with the use of weapons.
Late on Wednesday, police were told that an unknown man took six people hostage in the building of the bank. Investigators said the attacker carried an object resembling an explosive device. The man was shot dead in a special operation "due to a real threat to life and health of hostages," investigators said. All hostages were freed and their life is not under threat.
