“On 14 August, medical staff at the hospital in Perevalsk (non-government-controlled, 38km west of Luhansk) told the SMM that on the evening of 7 August, a seven-year-old boy was admitted with heavy blast injuries to his right leg caused by the explosion of a grenade,” the report reads.
On 24 August, in Kypuche (formerly Artemivsk, non-government-controlled, 46km west of Luhansk) a couple (man and woman in their seventies) who introduced themselves as the grandparents of the injured boy said that on the early evening of 7 August, they had been called by a neighbour to their daughter’s house in Kypuche after they heard a loud explosion.
The grandparents said that their two grandchildren had been playing in the yard of the abovementioned house with an object that they had found in a neighbor’s house. According to them, while the younger child had been alone in the yard of his mother’s house, he had picked up the device, which had exploded.
