Media report «blast» outside Kyiv office of Putin's political operative.

The cause of the explosion remains unclear, as well as whether it inflicted any damage whatsoever.

Two persons have reportedly been detained in what appears to be a street action outside the building hosting the office of Viktor Medvedchuk, Russian President's main political operative in Ukraine and leader of the Opposition Platform – For Life Party.

Videos from the scene shot by eyewitnesses show a cloud of black smoke coming from the backyard of the office in central Kyiv – a fenced-off area which is normally heavily guarded by a private security firm.

The cause of the explosion remains unclear, as well as whether it inflicted any damage whatsoever.

Unconfirmed reports claim police allegedly detained at least two persons involved in the incident. Other members of the group have reportedly fled from scene, throwing flares.

The photos of the building posted by PavlovskyNews show the building's walls being vandalized by red paint, which could also be the result of today's action.
