"Bomb-disposal experts have just disposed of the two improvised explosive devices at the Minskiy market. At about 12:00 Kyiv time, an anonymous caller contacted the police 102 hotline and said two kiosks on wheels at 26 Obolonsky Avenue had been mined. The law enforcers and bomb-disposal experts deployed to verify the report and found hazardous objects. (...) The explosives planted between a car and the retail kiosks were neutralized," Klitschko said.
