A group of children felt sick at a summer camp near Tsybli village, Kyiv region, northern Ukraine.

Twelve students of a local sport school who were practicing for the rhythmic gymnastics asked for medical assistance, and then an eight-year-old girl, who was among the patients, fell into a coma on Wednesday night. She is now in the critical condition at the hospital in Kyiv.

The regional prosecutor’s office initiated a criminal case, defining it as a mass poisoning. The mentioned sport school still works, because it takes the decision of a special government commission to shut it down.
