Earlier, law enforcement officers in Kiev detained a man who was carrying a grenade in his bag as a “souvenir”. About a week later, the police caught another man with a grenade already on one of the streets of Rivne.
In mid-May in the Luhansk region, a man blew up a grenade at a bank branch, as a result of which six people were injured, including a police officer. A couple of days after that, already in Kharkov, an unknown person blew up a grenade near one of the residential buildings of the city. The explosion killed two people.
Also on May 26, in the Odessa region, an unknown person threw a grenade into the courtyard of a private house. The blast damaged the windows of the house and the car.
