The video picks up when the man is punched in the face and left off-balance. After regaining his footing, the man casually pulls out a grenade from his pocket and drops in the middle of the small crowd. A loud explosion is heard before the men were able to flee.
According to reports, the National Police of Ukraine confirmed the man “threw an RGD-5 grenade” during “a conflict.”
“The grenade blast injured five people between the ages of 16 and 33. All the victims with shrapnel wounds were taken to medical facilities in Kharkiv,” authorities said. The 29-year-old man was arrested and charged with illegally handling weapons, ammunition, or explosives. If convicted, he faces 10 years in prison.
