Two Hospitalized After Explosion In Central Ukraine

Two people have been hospitalized following an explosion in the central Ukrainian city of Kirovohrad.

The blast occurred on March 22 in the city's central Bohdan Khmelnitskiy Square. Two cars were damaged by the explosion.

Law enforcement officials in the region of Kirovohrad said that an unknown explosive device has detonated in a metallic garbage bin.

Investigations have been launched into the incident.

Last year, a series of bomb blasts hit Ukraine's eastern city of Kharkiv and southern port city of Odesa.

Authorities blamed the explosions on Russia and groups linked to pro-Russian separatists in the country’s east.
