A terrorist who has hijacked a commuter bus in the town of Lutsk, western Ukraine, has published his demands to Ukraine's government.

In particular, he "congratulated" everyone on "Anti-system Day" and said "the state is a primary terrorist."

"The truth voiced by the 24 will save hundreds of lives," he wrote on Twitter, urging church leaders, ministers, chiefs of courts, prosecutors' offices, and parliament to record and upload on YouTube videos stating on camera that they are "legalized terrorists."
