The Czech Republic has expelled 18 members of the Russian embassy in Prague on suspicion that Russian secret services were involved in the explosion at an ammunition depot in 2014, and Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were declared in the international search.

According to the Czech police, in October 2014, GRU members Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov managed to cross the Czech border with a Moldovan passport issued for the identity of Nicolai Popa and another from Tajikistan, issued in the name of Ruslan Tabarov.

On October 16, 2014, several explosions took place in an ammunition depot. The blasts killed two employees of a private company that had rented the warehouse from a state-owned company.
