SEVASTOPOL, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. A district court of Crimea’s Sevastopol has arrested a 36-year-old resident of Ivano-Frankivsk, a city western Ukraine, who fired at self-defense guards in city center on Sunday, the press service of a local law enforcement agency told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The Leninsky district court “has imposed custodial detention as a pre-trial restraint, and investigation is underway,” the press service said. “The arrested man is suspected of attempted murder and illegal carrying of firearms,” its sources added.
An attempted provocation was stopped in Sevastopol, the main base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine, on Sunday during celebrations to mark the 200th birth anniversary of poet Taras Shevchenko. It was staged by several people arriving from different Ukrainian regions. When self-defense guards attempted to detain them, one of the men tried to vanish from the scene firing at them from a pistol. The man was detained.
