“The prosecution and Polish (security – ed.) services took the appropriate steps immediately following the incident,” Mueller told a press conference.

He added that the inquiry will take several days.

The Interior Ministry reported on Thursday that a gift received by Jarosław Szymczyk, the head of the police, during his visit to Ukraine exploded on Wednesday morning in a room adjacent to his office.

Szymczyk suffered minor injuries and has been hospitalised for further monitoring, the ministry said.
