An explosion occurred in the Roshen store in Kiev’s Obolon district
SIA informs citing the TASS that no one was injured, Kiev police chief Alexander Tereschuk said. He refuted the information received earlier that the shop had been shelled with a grenade launcher.
"According to previous estimates, this can be regarded as hooliganism. There was a powder charge, but there are no debris, so it must have been a self-made explosive device. I refute the information about the store being shelled with a grenade launcher," he told Ukraine’s public television.
Tereschuk noted that a terrorist attack was ruled out.
The law enforcement officials said the explosion had taken place on Thursday at about 23:00 local time. No one was injured as a result of the incident.
