ODESSA, February 18. /TASS/. An explosion struck the south Ukrainian city of Odessa on Wednesday, making it the fifth incident with the use of unknown explosives in the city this year. No casualties have been reported.
The explosion occurred in the center of the city. At midnight, a basement in the building housing a service center was blown up. The center belongs to the leader of Odessa’s informal movement of drivers called Antimaidan Yevgeny Rezvushkin.
Rezvushkin told a TASS correspondent he does not consider the explosion to be connected with his political views. "Most likely, [they] are trying to scare us," he said, adding that he has certain disagreements with competitors, while the service center is "a business that feeds him."
Another powerful explosion struck Odessa on February 6. Then, a building of Privatbank, Ukraine largest bank belonging to tycoon Igor Kolomoisky, was blown up in the city. Kolomoisky was earlier put on an international wanted list.
On February 3, a tanker with oil products was blown up at Odessa’s railway station Peresyp. Two separate explosions rocked the buildings of coordination centers for providing aid to participants of the Ukrainian military operation in Donbas on February 5 and 16.
