On March 8, in Lipetsk, an unknown attacker decided to "congratulate" local residents on the holiday by organizing a mass mailing of grenades along with flowers.

According to the telegram channel "Base", the police are already aware of at least three such episodes, an investigation has begun.

The first victim of the "congratulations bomber" was an assistant prosecutor who lives on Pobedy Avenue. At about noon, a gift box was delivered to her from a flower shop, in which, along with a festive bouquet, there was an F-1 grenade, with a fuse, but without gunpowder, as well as a threatening letter.

An hour and a half later, a similar package with an F-1 grenade was brought to Stakhanov Street. A threatening gift was delivered to an employee of a flower shop, who is now on maternity leave. Residents of the house had to be evacuated due to the threat of an explosion. In total, 120 people were taken out of the building. There was also no fuse in the grenade.

An hour later, a similar package was found in a flower shop on Victory Square. A bouquet with a grenade, to which a threatening letter was attached, was intended for delivery to a local resident who is on leave to care for an infant.

Now the police are finding out who declared war on the Lipchankas who are on maternity leave. It is known that a woman brought a dangerous box for an employee of the prosecutor's office to a flower shop with a request to deliver a "gift" along with a bouquet. It is not yet known whether she acted alone, or whether she had accomplices. Now the police are searching for intruders.
