Novyi Vizit media outlet reports the details of the accident.
“The blast, which occurred on the second floor of Podium store located near Genichesk’s Central Market in Druzhby Narodov (formerly Maharadze) Street at around 8.30 p.m., smashed the store’s windows, sending glass shards and plastic fragments flying all over the place. According to initial reports, no one was injured in the blast,” reports Novyi Vizit.
Police and the Azov battalion blocked traffic in the street and sealed off the blast site.
Police declined comment before the arrival of demolition experts from the town of Kherson.
Chief of the Genichesk police department also declined comment, saying only there was an explosion in the store.
“The store’s owner suspects a surveillance camera installed some distance away from the blast epicenter was purposefully damaged prior to the blast,” says the report.
It is alleged a grenade launcher might have been used to attack the store from a distance of 50 meters.
It was reported earlier that members of the Azov battalion, who took part in Crimea blockade, have been patrolling the Genichesk district on a daily basis. According to them, this has been necessitated by an increase in separatist sentiments in the region.
On April 14, 2016, a car bomb loaded with 6 kilos of explosives went off in the town of Novoaleksyevka. The car was parked in the town’s center and stood there for nearly 12 hours before the bomb was remotely detonated. Four people were wounded and one man killed in the explosion. The car was blown to pieces, with its fragments landing some 200 meters from the blast epicenter. According to police, the car had plates issued in Odessa and was resold four times before being blown up. The explosion was qualified as an act of terrorism.
