Near the Kiev crypto-exchanger shot from a machine gun

Yesterday, near the Kiev crypto-exchanger, an automatic burst sounded.

Two injured and 14 arrested - this is the finale of the conflict between activists and employees of the cryptocurrency exchange.

Oleksiy Seredyuk, an activist of one of the Ukrainian radical parties, ended up in the hospital. Seredyuk is a member of the Brotherhood party, which is known for its high-profile protests.

The name of the second victim is unknown.

Police said warning shots were fired into the air. There were no gunshot wounds to the participants in the fight. What is the essence of the conflict, and who the initiator is still unknown.

Arrived at the scene of the incident, the special forces and the investigative-operational group arrested the participants in the fight. In fact, a criminal case was initiated under the article - hooliganism.

Local media have made speculation about the racket. Perhaps the nationalists demanded money from a bitcoin exchanger.

Mikhail Chobanyan, the head of the Ukrainian crypto exchange Kuna, suggested that two cryptocurrency structures were in conflict. In this case, radical activists could be recruited as "mercenaries".
