"A feat. A dozen of cash machines have been blown up in Sumy since past fall. We weren't able to track down the perpetrators until now. Last night, the police clashed with a robber as he tried to blow up another ATM. He was wounded in the leg and detained. A 40-year old police sergeant was wounded as well. The bullet hit the face and lodged in the cervical spine. The plane with the wounded officer is departing for Kyiv in an hour. I pray he survives," he said.
