Mykolaiv: SBU prevents sale of 4 kg plastic explosive
The SBU officers jointly with the Police investigators under the procedural supervision of the Military Prosecutor's Office prevented sale of high-powered plastic explosive.
The SBU operatives established that a resident of the regional center with the help of his friends, in particular from the area of Joint Forces Operation, organised a supply channel for further sale of explosives and destruction means, to the representatives of regional criminal circles.
The SBU officers documented the fact that the criminal sold one kilogram of the explosive.
Law enforcers detained the “trader” at his workplace on trying to sell 4 kg of plastisol for UAH 200,000 (USD 7100).
Now, the primary investigative actions on identifying criminals involved in the sale of destruction means are ongoing in the framework of the criminal proceeding previously initiated under Part 1 Art. 263 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
