On Saturday in the city of Radlov in southeastern Poland, police detained a man suspected of deliberately setting fire to vehicles intended for assistance to war-torn Ukraine. One car burned down completely, another – likely to be repairable. This was reported by TVN24 TV channel.
The fire broke out late on Friday in the parking lot of the municipal office. On Saturday, the police worked at the scene, establishing that the cars were set on fire intentionally. A 35-year-old man was detained on suspicion of arson.
It is reported that on Saturday morning both ambulances were supposed to leave for Ukraine in the convoy of the Power of the Future foundation. The destroyed ambulance was intended for one of the hospitals in Kharkov – a city often hit by Russian missiles.
The Foundation, which brings humanitarian aid to Ukraine almost weekly for a year, is now raising money for a new car.
“We can't remain indifferent to the need of the hospital that was waiting for this ambulance”, – said the Foundation.
Ten vehicles were to be delivered to Ukraine – six ambulances and four pickups. After the fire, the convoy was reduced to four ambulances and two pickup trucks. The second part of the transport – two trucks with medical equipment – were not injured and went to Ukrainian hospitals.
