Miraculously, no one was hurt,” Gerashchenko said, adding that reporters from CNN, Fox News, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and Voice of America had the chance to see for themselves “who was actually preparing for an attack on peaceful Ukraine.”

Ukraine has been accusing Russia of seeking to create a pretext for an invasion. Moscow has categorically denied the allegations. On Friday, the breakaway regions of Donetsk and Lugansk announced the urgent evacuation of civilians to Russia, citing fears of the imminent threat of a “breakthrough” by Ukrainian forces, which Kiev also denies.
