An incident near the Lisova metro station in Kyiv late Tuesday where, reportedly, two hand grenades were thrown at a Toyota Camry, burning the car down and injuring a man, has started to clear up, according to media reports.
Apparently, operatives of the Kharkiv office of the SBU Security Service conducted a sting operation to reveal those involved in an illegal ammo sales scheme, according to Obozrevatel. During the operation, the investigation target, who was a Kyiv policeman resisted arrest and managed to throw a grenade at the vehicle with the SBU operatives inside, according to the outlet's source.
As a result of the explosion, one SBU officer was wounded.
The culprit fled the scene.
Kyiv police said early Wednesday that all forces were focused on locating an apprehending the attacker.
