"While undertaking foot patrol in the Kyiv district of Odesa, police officers spotted a person with a fake beard which was a bit slanted. A loaded handgun found was on the suspect as the law enforcers performed a pat-down search on him," National Police First Deputy Chief Viacheslav Abroskin wrote on social media, Censor.NET reports.
According to the police official, the law enforcers found that the person arrived from the breakaway region of Transnistria. He is a member of the crime ring lead by Oleg Reniisky, whom the Ukrainian law enforcement agencies put on national and international wanted lists for organizing a crime ring and committing grave crimes in Ukraine and who is currently evading justice in the territory of Romania.
"It could be argued that the police officers saved the life of a local businessman by detaining this foreign trigger man who arrived in Odesa following the order of Oleg Reniisky. The killer was placed in pretrial custody," Abroskin said.
"I am grateful to the Odesa policemen for saving the lives of Ukrainians!" Abroskin stressed.
