The machine in the face. Inspectors of Cobra threatened the journalist with the Road Control
The Internet edition of the Road Control released a video of how the inspectors of the Cobra police department, with excess of official authority, threatened a journalist with a firearm - a Kalashnikov assault rifle and a pistol.
According to the Road Control, on April 8, journalists arrived at the Zhytomyr post of the DPS in Kiev to make a report about how Cobra workers, according to the publication, stop cars without cause. After a while, two traffic cops noticed the parked car of the journalists of the Palace of Culture and approached the car. Further, as the newspaper notes, they demanded from the driver to produce the rights and technical passport, without giving the reasons for the check. Journalist Vladimir Maralov opened a glove compartment to get a purse. There he also had a traumatic pistol Fort, the possession of which the journalist had an official permit. Only when he noticed the pistol, the Kobrovtsy immediately sent their firearms to the driver's head.
One of the law enforcers, pulling the bolt and chasing the cartridge in the chamber, began to shout at the driver, using profanity, and demand to get out of the car. Maralov suggested to the inspectors to calm down, since there is a permit for the pistol, but the traffic cops continued to point the weapon at the head, while trying to open the car by force ...
As a result, special forces, other militiamen and traffic cops, as well as activists of the Right sector arrived to the scene of the event. Than it all ended - look at the video!
