Most of fake bomb reports come from Russia, CADLR and Belarus - Monastyrsky

Most of the fake bomb reports recorded in Ukraine came from certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions (CADLR), Russia and Belarus, Interior Minister of Ukraine Denys Monastyrsky said during a special telethon dedicated to the Unity Day.

The minister clarified that such false bomb reports are one of the tools of the hybrid war. Monastyrsky also reminded that over the first month of this year alone, Ukraine received more false bomb threats than over the whole of last year.
