It was previously established that in the car of the funicular, a conflict arose between a law enforcement officer, who was in a state of intoxication, and a teenager on the topic of military service. After they got to the platform of the upper station, the adult man attacked the boy and pushed him down the stairs. However, the parole officer lost his balance and fell on the minor, who smashed his head against the window glass during the fall, and the fragments cut the child's neck.

"After that, the boy climbed the stairs on his own, but then fell and died before the paramedics arrived," our source added.

Later, the "Chaika" Sports Club posted on its Instagram page that the deceased was their student.

"In the evening, Maksym was walking with his friends on Poshtova Square, on the funicular. At some point, a man in a military uniform without insignia did not like the 16-year-olds having fun and decided to show his military patriotism. He approached them in a drunken state with the words: "Are you ready to pay your debt to your homeland?". Maksym confidently answered that he was ready," the statement reads.
