"On Presnensky Val, unknown persons drove up to the men in a car, fired several shots in their direction, openly stole a large amount of money, and then fled the scene," the report says.

It is noted that the Prosecutor's Office of the Central Administrative District controls the decision to initiate a criminal case on the fact of robbery (Article 162 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and the identification of persons involved in the crime.

Earlier, a RIA Novosti source reported that several people opened fire near the bank and stole about 300 million rubles from couriers.
