In Gostomel, unknown people cut off a Banksy drawing along with a piece of wall: details

One of the creations of the world famous artist Banksy, whose paintings on the walls are sold for millions of dollars - did not live in Ukraine for a month. It's all the fault of the vandals. According to KT sources in law enforcement agencies, five residents of Kiev and three residents of Cherkasy have already been exposed in Gostomel, who participated in the illegal dismantling of graffiti.

So, it was previously established that one of the accomplices offered his acquaintances to dismantle the graffiti of an English street artist from the facade of a damaged residential building in the specified city, to which they agreed and on the morning of December 2 cut off a part of the facade insulation on which the image was painted. The motives of the deed are being investigated. On this fact, criminal proceedings were initiated under part 1 of article 194 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (deliberate destruction or damage to property).

Having cut off the specified drawing from the facade of the damaged house, the men tried to transfer it to the car, but at that time they were stopped. During the inspection of the scene, a fragment of a wall with an image (painting) of a woman in a gas mask and with a fire extinguisher was removed, which was probably created by the famous English graffiti artist Banksy.

Wanted to help the Armed Forces

For a journalist UNN the police of the Kyiv region said that, according to the vandals, they wanted to sell this fragment of the wall in order to allegedly help the Armed Forces of Ukraine with these funds. However, investigators are conducting interrogations to establish the true motive for the act.

“We will continue to interrogate. But the detainees said they wanted to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this way. That is, they wanted to sell, and dump the funds on the Armed Forces of Ukraine. But the reasons are still being clarified, the measure of restraint will be chosen after the circumstances are established,” - told the police.

Recall that British street artist Banksy confirmed that he created seven murals in different places in Ukraine, in particular, in Kyiv, Irpen and Borodianka. Below are the artist's creations.
