On October 29, 40 “unidentified persons” raided a military airport of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the city of Odessa. The persons entered the territory of the military unit “A3571” and stole the property stationed there, the press service of the Ukrainian Air Force Command said.
“Today, in Odessa, at about 8:45 am, unidentified persons, about 40 people in balaclavas attempted the raider capture of a part of the territory of the military facility, which belongs to the Defense Ministry of Ukraine. Unknown persons who position themselves as representatives of the Commerce and Entertainment CITI CENTER partially dismantled the fence of the military unit A3571, and took out military equipment in an unknown direction,” the statement reads.
Meanwhile, the local police said that the representatives of the CITI CENTER entered the area thanks to a decision of legal authorities that allegedly allowed the company to build a parking there.
It looks “the most powerful army in Europe” lost a battle for its military airport to the hypermarket.
