So taking into account the most outrageous impudence of the coming raiders and the demonstrational torpidity of the local police the veterans of the Independence War decided to complete the work on the rights security provision in Ternopil region.

So, given the most outrageous and indicative visiting Raiders inaction of the local police to do the work of law enforcement in Ternopil decided Veterans War of Independence. Immediately after his abuse, Oleksandr Pochynok addressed to his war blood brothers with request to make things in order in the region and neutralize the “Oplot men”, Kharkiv raiders, who are making terror attacks on citizens of Ternopil region.

On Sunday evening started the public mobilization of ATO veterans and already after some hours hundreds of volunteers came out onto the roads of the region to capture the “Mriya” Agricultural Holding mercenaries. Frightened by the people’s outrage the Kharkiv raiders from “Oplot” left the territory of Ternopil region. They tried to hide in the forest belt driving two black utility vehicles and minibuses, but being close to the Plugiv village of the Zborivsk region the thugs were captured by the local ATO veterans. After warning shot the men from “Oplot” Kharkiv pseudo-private security firm laid down arms and surrendered.

Upon Oleksandr Pochynko, the ATO veteran abuse case the criminal provision was started. But the villagers and war blood brothers take up the position that the police roof the “thugs” from Kharkiv.

So it seems that the consolidated villagers and ATO veterans of the Ternopil region will be forced henceforward rebuff the Kharkiv gang by theirselves.
