KIEV, April 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and Poland agreed to help Ukraine in investigating a series of explosions in the industrial city of Dnepropetrovsk which injured 29 people on Friday. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich will visit the city on Saturday, his press service said.
First Deputy Chief of the National Security Service of Ukraine Vladimir Rokitsky said his agency requested foreign counterparts to help and Russia and Poland “immediately offered assistance.”
He told the Ukrainian TV on Friday there were no detained suspects so far and nobody has taken on responsibility for the blasts. “So far there is not a single statement and not a single report in Internet,” he said.
Rokitsky said several versions are being investigated.
In the meantime, chief investigator of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry Vasily Farinnik denied possible political reasons behind the explosions. "I see no politics in the case," he told Inter TV channel on Friday. "The actions aimed at intimidating people," he said.
Twenty-nine people were injured in a series of four explosions. Five people are in grave condition. The blasts caused panic in the city.
