KIEV. March 12. /TASS/. An explosion has occurred in Odessa near a business center where an office of the parliamentary party Samopomich (Self Reliance) is located, a spokesman for the Odessa region department of the Ukrainian interior ministry said on Thursday.
"The explosion occurred on the ground floor near the entrance to the building. Bomb specialists are working at the site," the spokesman said, adding that the blast had been classified as a terrorist act.
The blast at the Admiralteisky business center was reported at 0:30 a.m. local time (22:30 p.m. GMT). No one was hurt.
A series of blasts were reported from Odessa in December 2014 and January-February 2015. All of them took place near buildings housing organizations linked with providing aid to participants in the force operation in eastern Ukraine.
Overnight to March 5, an explosion took place near the Odessa office of the radical organization Right Sector, which has been recognized as an extremist organization in Russia. Ukraine’s police classified all these explosions as terrorist acts.
