In Ladies lavatory situated in Rouswelt Street in the city of Yalta (Crimea), a man has entered by force. While menacing with a physical punishment, he robbed a purse of a “lady” and intended to escape, though suddenly two aged women appeared in his way, who just entered the lavatory. They threw the robber down and started to beat him with legs. The pensioners’ screams and the robber’s cry drew attention of the police. The malefactor was detained. He turned out to be a 50-year-old local citizen, who has never been implicated in crimes.
The choice of the city of Helsinki is not incidental as the capital of Finland had hosted US-Soviet negotiations on the limitation of nuclear stockpiles in 1969
