A small explosion that occurred on the lawn of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine in Kyiv overnight on June 8 has been classified as a terrorist attack by Ukraine’s National Police.
But U.S. Embassy staff played down the incident, saying it wasn’t serious.
“It was a small explosive device. The blast didn’t harm the embassy’s property. Nobody from the staff suffered injuries. The embassy is operating as usual,” read a message published on the U.S. Embassy’s Facebook page on June 8.
