Bombing: Russian intelligence officer killed

A Russian intelligence officer was killed in the town of Oleshky in Ukraine’s Kherson oblast. This reports the German news paper with reference to Ukrainska Pravda and a corresponding video purporting to show the explosion.

Ukrainska Pravda cites the video and Ukrainian military officials in its report. In addition to the killed intelligence officer, four other Russian military personnel were injured in the explosion, it said. One of the passengers was said to be in critical condition. In the video, a silver car can be seen driving down a road. After a few seconds, a loud bang is heard and the camera image is blurred.

This information comes from a party to the conflict and has not yet been independently verified / confirmed. For this reason, the report must be evaluated with reservations. In war, it can be advantageous for parties to make false statements about the course of the conflict in order to strengthen their own position or weaken the position of the opponent.
