A 55-year-old man with two sons, all being residents of the village of Nyzhnia Vilkhova in Ukrainian-controlled territory of Stanychno-Luhansk district, were moving towards a railway bridge on a bank of the River Siversky Donets, and walked straight into a booby trap with a hidden hand-grenade.

Investigators are now working on the site, the press service said.
