This story began when at the Mynai water intake station, located in the village of Kholmok in Uzhgorod district, last night electricity supply suddenly went off.
Workers of the station examined the area and found a broken power transmission line. Nearby in the field, they saw a dark SUV with a covered trailer and blocked its way with their own vehicle.
Two men came out of the SUV, beat the station worker and drove off. They tried to pursue them, but the SUV managed to escape from the pursuers.
