A group of intruders who last night attacked a bank in Kiev, released on freedom. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine reported that "there are no grounds for their arrest." It turned out that the attackers, who called themselves “warriors of Narnia”, were active participants in the recent protests in the center of Kiev. According to them, they came not to rob, but to protect the bank.

There are no grounds for their detention. Weapon, which they voluntarily surrendered, will be sent for examination, ”ITAR-TASS quotes the words of the police representative.
“Night visitors explained to the law enforcement officers that they were“ Warriors of Narnia ”. Some of them said that they came to protect the bank, and someone just passed by and was in the financial institution by chance, ”the guard added. Now law enforcement officers interrogate bank security and study videotapes from surveillance cameras.
