Baku-APA. Prison guards foiled on Saturday a daring Hollywood-style attempt to spring two inmates from a penal colony in central Ukraine, the country’s penitentiary service said on its website, APA reports.

“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 penitentiary service said.

The prison guards stopped the helicopter’s takeoff, detaining the escapees and their accomplices, the service said without giving any details of the detention.

A year ago a convicted murderer escaped a high-security prison in Russia’s Vologda Region, using a rope ladder to climb aboard a helicopterhijacked by his accomplices. Later the same day he was recaptured by police.
