A Renault Duster car exploded in the center of Russian-occupied Melitopol, Mayor Ivan Fedorov said . “A car is on fire, ablaze on the central avenue of Melitopol. And the Rashist henchmen burn with fear of being next,” he writes, adding that, according to eyewitnesses, there were Russians in the car.
Ukrainian Telegram channels write that a homemade bomb exploded in the car, and there were two FSB officers in it. One of them had a limb blown off in the explosion. There is no official confirmation of this information.
In early December, an attempt was made on the life of Nikolai Volyk, deputy head of the city "administration" appointed by Russia, in Melitopol. It happened at 6:40 in the morning when he was leaving the house. An explosion thundered in his entrance, as a result of which glass flew out in the windows from the 1st to the 9th floors. The collaborator himself was not injured. For half a month before that, also in Melitopol, unknown people tried to kill Andriy Boyko, “Deputy Minister for Culture, Sports and Tourism” of the Zaporozhye Region.
