“At present, all the circumstances of the incident are being investigated,” Larisa Boldinova, a representative of the Investigative Directorate of the ICR in the Omsk region, told RG.

The injured child was hospitalized with injuries. There is no threat to his life, the doctors promise to discharge the boy in a few days.
Law enforcement agencies are investigating how the F-1 grenade ended up in the house of a couple of pensioners. Its fragments were sent for examination.
