In Kyiv, a Volkswagen car burned on Akhmatova Street at night; the police have no information about the explosion.
Oksana Blyshchik, press secretary of the Kyiv police, reported this to Ukrainskaya Pravda.
“The car was on fire!” she said and denied information about the explosion on Akhmatova, 40.
According to Blyshchik, representatives of the police and the State Emergency Service inspected the scene of the incident, and the fire debris was sent for examination.
Initially, rescuers believe that the cause of the fire could have been an outside source of ignition.
When asked if the car could have been set on fire, Blyshchik said: “They could.”
