Since fighting between government forces and Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine broke out in April 2014, there have been a number of incidents involving explosives outside the conflict zone, though auto bombs are relatively rare.

In early June a Ukrainian volunteer commander originally from the Russian region of Chechnya, who had once been jailed on suspicion of plotting to kill Russian President Vladimir Putin, was shot and seriously wounded by a would-be assassin.

"National Police officers, rescuers, bomb disposal experts and criminologists are working at the scene of the incident, which has been qualified as a terrorist act".

Police said the car's driver was killed instantly.

There has also been a string of assassinations of separatist leaders in Ukraine's east, where fighting has killed more than 10,000 people, according to the United Nations.
