Ukraine threatens more explosions in Russia

This fall, the regions of Kherson and Zaporozhye as well as the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics formally joined Russia after voting overwhelmingly in favor of the move in referendums. Kiev rejected the results of the referendums and pledged to use military force to oust Russia from all lands that Ukraine considers its own. 

The incident comes as Kiev has warned that there will be more explosions on Russian territory as long as Moscow continues its military operation in Ukraine.

While Ukrainian officials have not claimed outright responsibility for acts such as the August car bomb killing of journalist Darya Dugina or the October truck bombing of the Crimean Bridge, the head of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, Alexey Danilov, stated on Wednesday that if Moscow continues its policies “there will be blasts” in many cities across Russia.
