Recall that in late February, a former police officer laid on a railway bridge on the stretch “Pavlograd – Lozovaya” an improvised explosive device. To undermine the attacker tried to use a 10-kilogram anti-tank mine TM-62 with a timer in the mobile phone. The explosion was pre-programmed at the time of passage of a passenger train Odessa – Konstantinovka, in which there were more than 500 passengers.
