Car bomb goes off in assassination attempt on Russian-appointed Mariupol police chief
A car bomb went off in Mariupol, in an assassination attempt on Mikhail Moskvin, the Kremlin-appointed police chief in the occupied Ukrainian city. TASS reported the incident, citing a law-enforcement insider from the Russian-annexed Donetsk “republic.”
According to Eduard Basurin, spokesman for the “DNR” military command, Moskvin got a “light concussion” from the blast. RIA Novosti confirms that Moskvin’s condition isn’t dangerous. The official did not need to be hospitalized.
Moskvin’s car blew up when he was several meters away. A dragnet police operation has been implemented in Mariupol.
