The blast in Kerch as a result of which 18 people died and 50 sustained injuries, can be connected by the law enforcers of occupied Crimea with the "Ukrainian trail." In future it can be used by Russia as a reason for the war in the Sea of Azov or even the invasion as Ukraine's Interior Ministry speaker Artem Shevchenko reported on Facebook.
"I will be surprised if the Russian enforcers-occupants in Crimea do not find the connections of the suspects in the terrorist action in Kerch college with the supposed "nationalists from Azov" or "ISIS Tatars" or just some contacts with mainland Ukraine. It is hard to imagine the better casus belli – the reason for the war in the Sea of Azov or the storm of Mariupol and Berdiansk from the sea. I would be glad to be wrong in my senses," he claimed.
As we reported an explosion thundered at a college in Kerch, the town in the Russian-occupied Crimea. It claimed lives of at least ten people; another fifty sustained injuries. According to the initial version, the explosion took place due to the gas leak; however, it became known that the building of the college was not connected to the gas supply.
Later it was reported that the number of casualties increased up to 18 people.
Russia's Investigative Committee opened a criminal proceeding due to Crimean blast upon the article on the terrorist action; however, later it reclassified it to the mass murder.
A crime was committed by an 18-year-old student of the college, later he shot himself.
