Quote: "Unfortunately, today an absolutely unacceptable event took place in the city of Chernihiv. In the afternoon, an explosion rang out at a public event in the city centre [after] a grenade launcher went off. There are several casualties, including children. A little boy in critical condition is currently in intensive care.

Law enforcement officers should find out as soon as possible why this happened, who brought combat weapons to this municipal event. All those responsible must be brought to justice. And they will be.

And I call on the representatives of local authorities throughout the country, all our law enforcement officers, to be very careful so that this never happens again anywhere."

Previously: On the afternoon of 3 September, a grenade launcher went off at an exhibition in Chernihiv’s historical centre, injuring four children, including a two-year-old boy who is in critical condition.
