Authorities said on Tuesday, reports NDTV.
The device went off Monday night on Pokrovka Street, a trendy area in central Moscow dotted with bars and restaurants.
‘A hooliganism inquiry has been opened,’ Moscow police spokesman Maxim Kolosvetov told the media.

A spokeswoman for the health department of the Moscow city hall said separately that four people received medical attention Monday night and three of them were hospitalized.
A fifth person turned to the authorities for help and was hospitalized on Tuesday, she said.
