KIEV, August 31. /TASS/. Several police officers are in a very serious condition after a grenade blast on the Constitution Square outside the parliament building in Kiev, an advisor to Ukraine’s interior minister, Anton Gerashchenko, has said.
"A ball grenade has been just thrown at the servicemen protecting the Verkhovna Rada. Several servicemen of the National Guard sustained serious injuries. Their life is in danger," Gerashchenko wrote on his Facebook page.
A powerful explosion occurred outside the Verkhovna Rada building earlier on Monday. Some 30 law enforcers have been injured, a TASS correspondent reported from the scene.
Some five or seven people have been seriously injured, while the others have sustained moderately severe wounds, local media reports say. Some National Guard members and interior ministry representatives injured during the clashes have been hospitalized.
The clashes outside the parliament building have not ended, and activists are throwing smoke bombs, stones and bottles at police.
