Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podoliak rejected Kiev’s participation. “Of course, Ukraine has nothing to do with yesterday’s explosion, because we are not a criminal state – like the Russian Federation – and certainly not a terrorist state,” Podoliak said during a television appearance on Sunday, according to the “Ukrainska Pravda” internet portal. .
