The explosion injured up to seven people. EMS personnel are working at the scene. According to witnesses, there is a young woman in grave condition among the injured. The explosive device was set off at a time when people were leaving the building.
People's Front MP Anton Herashchenko noted that "according to the fresh data 12 people were wounded. Investigators and EMS are working at the site - a total of eight teams."
"According to preliminary information, it is known that an explosion occurred after the hearing of Svoboda party member Sokolov. He is accused of coming with a gun to a polling station on Oct. 26. A group of his supporters was at the trial. After the hearing they came out of the courthouse, and immediately there was an explosion. It is too early to draw any conclusions - whether it is an act of terrorism, or someone from the friends of the accused came to court with a grenade," he wrote on his page on Facebook.
