SEVASTOPOL, March 15, 13:10 /ITAR-TASS/. Police in Sevastopol have detained two men at a post office who attempted to receive a parcel with bullet-proof vests and police shields, the local police press service told Itar-Tass.
"On March 14, police detained residents of Kiev and Slavutich, who attempted to receive a parcel. There were eight sets of bullet-proof vests and shields in it," a police source said.
The men arrived in Sevastopol from Simferopol by train. One of them said he expected to receive a parcel with medicines for sailors of the Ukrainian ship Slavutich and did not know there were shields and protective outfit in it. The second man said he was a correspondent of UkrStream TV. He could not explain for what he needed bullet-proof vests and shields.
Policemen and Sevastopol self-defence members found two bullet-proof vests at the IPC press centre at Suvorov Street. The office of the pro-Maidan Internet newspaper Civil Defence is also located there.
The head of the press centre, Tatyana Rikhtun, said her colleagues from other media had sent the bullet-proof vests for protection of her life, since she was twice attacked during a week. Police seized the vests because special documents were required to wear them.
It is known that the IPC press centre is financed from the U.S. agency for international development.
