Footage filmed on Friday shows Pushkin Boulevard cordoned off by police. The street is located just a few buildings away from the blast at Separ cafe that killed the leader of the Donetsk People's Republic Alexander Zakharchenko.

Forty-two-year-old Zakharchenko was taken to hospital shortly after the explosion where he died of his injuries. The local authorities' Minister of Finance Aleksandr Timofeev and two others were injured in the explosion. According to local reports, the explosive device was placed in a car near the cafe.

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova accused the government in Kiev of being behind the attack.

Security Service of Ukraine's Press Secretary Elena Gitlyanskaya denied all the accusations, saying that the Ukraine Special Services had nothing to do with Zakharchenko's death. She believes his murder is a result of a conflict between local authorities.
