“My car was deep inside the ill-fated “Moskvich”. At the same time with his driver, we somehow opened the door and got out on the road. Somehow I have not found anything better than saying “Ku-ku”. From what my partner has made some kind of a conclusion and pulled out a gun,” says Ivan Okhlobystin.
