Be vigilant and report to the police about detection of objects of interest (abandoned bags, suitcases, boxes) and about persons whose behavior or appearance arouse suspicion of the possibility of committing terrorist acts", - Holovin noted.
He promised to effectively respond to reports of detection of objects of interest in places of work, residence or congestion.
