About a dozen of military trucks, that were driving from Chernihiv region to Transcarpathia, on Saturday evening stopped in the village of Symoniv in Goshcha district of Rivne region to refuel the vehicles and to eat. When they went on, one of the soldiers announced that his Kalashnikov was missing. It was not found at the place where they came back in search of the gun, so they reported it to the police.
