What you see on this picture and on the other pictures inside of this post is the story that is being unfolded now in Russia (and Ukraine). Gangs  use new tactics to get money from the ATMs – they blow them up terrorizing the population and neighbors with the loud full scale explosions all for just getting to the inner parts of the machines where the valuables are stored.

Inside you’ll see shocking aftermath of this “War on ATMs” and also a video captured by a bank camera how one of the ATMs was exploded. Let’s see.







People are waking up to the loud booms with their apartments rattling when the ATM in the store on the first floor exploded sending the parts of it as far as 50 meters away.vlcsnap-2014-02-11-16h38m28s133 vlcsnap-2014-02-11-16h37m33s68
