KHARKIV, Ukraine, January 19 /TASS/. An explosion has occurred near a court building in Kharkiv, on Monday.
“According to clarified reports, 12 people were injured. Investigators, operational workers and medical brigades are working at the site of the explosion,” Gerashchenko wrote on his page in Facebook.
He also noted that according to preliminary reports, the explosion roared shortly after a trial on the case of a Svoboda party member who was accused of coming to a polling station with arms on October 26.
“His support group was in the court room. After the trial, they went out of the court building. The explosion followed shortly afterwards. It is too early to make any conclusions on whether it was a terrorist attack or any of the culprit’s friends had come to the trial with a grenade,” Gerashchenko explained.
