Ukrainian feminist group FEMEN have accused the police in Kiev of planting explosives and guns in the activists’ headquarters in an attempt to smear the group’s name and curb their activities.
A police spokesman claimed the raid and search of FEMEN’s offices was conducted after police received an anonymous call that dangerous materials might be stored at a given address.
In a video apparently filmed by police, agents display a hand grenade and a gun allegedly hidden under ceiling panels. (See video below)
Officers also say they found leaflets with portraits of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kiril pictured in snipers’ cross-hairs.
