Police in Ukraine's capital city Kyiv released video showing an operation in which a man was apprehended after allegedly threatening to blow up a major bridge.
Police said the man also shot down a police drone monitoring him and fired several shots in the air during the police standoff. It remained unclear whether the man possessed any explosives when he was detained on Wednesday afternoon. Ukrainian media identified him as a soldier.
The standoff shut down vehicle and subway traffic on the bridge across the Dnieper River.
