This morning in the center of Kharkov, a car was blown up belonging to the Chief of the Department of Operational Development in the eastern region of Ukraine, Nikolay Cheremukhin.
The explosion occurred at 6:30 Kiev time. As a result of the explosion, there were no casualties, however, several cars and gates to the garage it was parked near were damaged by debris.
According to reports, four F-1 grenades were installed under the SUV. One of the grenades, located under the front wheel, detonated earlier and the Colonel was not inside the vehicle at the time. The remaining three were deactivated by security personnel.
“Judging by this amount of explosives, they probably did not want to simply frighten him,” the source said.
Earlier, Azov militants accused Cheremukhin of shelling the car of the leader of their group, Oleg Shiryaev.
