KIEV, January 5. /TASS/. An explosive device reportedly went off on a street corner in Ukraine’s Black Sea port city of Odessa late Sunday evening near a building that houses a coordination center for assistance to participants in Ukraine’s military operation in the east of the country.
The incident occurred at the corner of the Gimnazicheskaya Street and Bolshaya Arnautskaya street at about 22:30 local time (23:30 Moscow time). According to the local media resource Dumskaya the blast wave damaged the office’s door and smashed windows in the building across the street.
There have been no immediate reports of casualties. Investigators are examining the crime scene.
At this point TASS has no confirmation of the incident from official sources.
Last December Odessa saw a string of explosions, including one of them inside an office building in the city center. On December 24 a bomb went off at the Zastava-1 station of the Odessa Railway when a train was passing by. Another powerful explosion occurred in an Odessa suburb on December 26, killing a man and smashing windows in nearby buildings. National Guard units have been moved in.
