Hollywood-style jailbreak bid foiled in Ukraine
Moscow: A daring Hollywood-style attempt to spring two inmates from a penal colony in Ukraine was foiled by prison guards, the country`s penitentiary service said.
A helicopter carrying two accomplices of the inmates, armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle, which later turned out to be a dummy, landed on the territory of the Petrovskaya penal colony.
The prison guards stopped the helicopter`s takeoff, detaining the escapees and their accomplices, the service said.
A year ago, a convicted murderer escaped from a high-security prison in Russia`s Vologda region, using a rope ladder to climb aboard a helicopter hijacked by his accomplices.
Later the same day, he was recaptured by police.
