Explosion has taken place at Separ restaurant in Pushkin Boulevard. With wound the Finance Minister of the republic Alexander Timofeev is hospitalized. The explosive device has been purposefully put at restaurant, Zakharchenko's adviser has reported about it. The Separ cafe is approximately in 200 meters from Zakharchenko's residence and belongs to the chief of his protection, but the head of the republic there seldom appeared, tells the source close to the leadership of the DPR. The Security Service of Ukraine has two versions of murder of Zakharchenko: internal shootouts and "hand of Moscow". Death of the head of the DPR became result of the internal conflicts connected "with redistribution of the wrung-out business", consider in the SSU.

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova considers that there are all bases to believe that "behind Zakharchenko's murder there is the Kiev mode".
