A woman was arrested for bombing pro-war blogger Darya Trepova by giving a statue bust to the now-dead Vladen Tatarsky which then exploded. The explosion not only killed Tatarsky but also wounded over 30 on the spot.
The explosion took place in central St. Petersburg's cafe on Sunday. predominantly the Russian side has been blaming Ukraine and Ukraine the Russians.
Some also speculate the radical nature of the pro-war military blogger to be the cause of his downfall.
Tatarsky also went by the name Maxim Fomin, which is his real name. He has more than 560,000 followers on his Telegram account. Tatarsky was discussing war talks with his audience at the cafe, sometime before his death. Conveying a popular sentiment of the warmongers he said that they would kill and loot everyone.
Tatarsky was known for his criticism of Russia's defence for their failure to capture Ukraine completely. He had previously called some of Moscow's soldiers 'untrained idiots'.
Woman Arrested For Bombing Pro-War Blogger
Trepova had walked into the location where Tatarsky was and had been allegedly stopped by security as they doubted that she might have carried a bomb. The guards asked her to leave the bust of the helmeted soldier at the door.
As per reports, Trepova had joked about this matter with Tatarsky. She then grabbed the statue detained at the door and presented Tatarsky with it.
Sources have been suggesting that this attack must have been extensively planned.
As per a Russian news report, Trepova conveyed that she has been used but has declined from answering who had given the statue to her. Trepova is currently in custody for her actions.
Other sources state that this move could have been carried out by a compact resistance group that wished to target Russian propagandists and that the ministry of neither nation was involved.
This is not the first time a pro-war individual has been targeted. The daughter of a Russian pro-war nationalist, Darya Dugina had been killed last August by blowing up the car she was driving.
