“It’s noisy in Melitopol. Around 7.40 am [czasu moskiewskiego, w Polsce godzina 5.40 – przyp. red.] A loud explosion was heard in various parts of the city,” Vladimir Rogov, a representative of the occupation authorities in Melitopol, reported on the Telegram channel.

Loyal to the authorities in Kiev, the mayor of Melitopol, Ivan Fedorov, wrote on the Telegram channel that after the explosion, “orcs” [pogardliwe określenie Rosjan – przyp. red.] “They were not jokingly scared.” “They took the so-called police and rescuers to Ivan Alekseev Street – they allegedly found a homemade explosive near the firehouse. They also reported a wounded ‘policeman’. Probably later, they will block the street and look for ‘saboteurs’,” Fedorov added.

After an assassination attempt on a collaborator

The portal recalled that in mid-March, a representative of the occupation authorities, Ivan Tkach, died as a result of a car explosion in Melitopol. According to reports by the Ukrainian security service, the collaborator was responsible for transporting Russian soldiers and mercenaries to the front.

“Recall, on the day when Ivan Weaver’s car blew up, the version of the attempt on the life of the main collaborator of the fire brigade, Dmitry Kucherkov, was also considered. It is possible that today there was another attempt to eliminate the traitor,” RIA Melitopol wrote.
