Bomb blast in cafe after Russian pro-war blogger ‘handed exploding statuette’

In a fire at a St Petersburg cafe, one person died and at most 25 others were injured.

The explosion claimed Vladlen Tatarsky, a pro-war Russian military blogger, was killed in the blast, according to the Russian interior ministry.

Tatarsky was actually Maxim Fomin. He had over 560,000 Telegram followers and was one the most influential military bloggers. He provided a critical running commentary on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

It is not clear who caused the destruction of the cafe “Street Bar”, Russia’s second largest city.

Without providing any evidence, a senior Russian official pointed fingers at Ukraine. Kyiv refuted the claim.

Mykhailo Podolyak was a Ukrainian presidential advisor who blamed Russian domestic terrorism.

He said, “The spiders are eating one another in a container.”

Russian media and military bloggers claimed that Tatarsky was in Russia meeting members of the public, and that Tatarsky was presented with a statuette by a woman that apparently exploded.

Tatarsky would have been the second assassination of a Russian figure who was associated with the war in Ukraine if Tatarsky had been targeted.

He was one of hundreds of people who attended a lavish Kremlin ceremony in September that announced Russia’s annexed of four regions of Ukraine.

“We’ll defeat everybody, we’ll kill every one, and we’ll rob all we need to.” He said that everything would be just the way he wanted it to be in a video clip.

Sky News’ military analyst Sean Bell said that it was “very unlikely” that the Ukrainian military was responsible for the attack on St Petersburg, as the target wasn’t military.

He was always alive, even though he was at the most dangerous parts of the special military operations. Semyon Pegov, who blogs as War Gonzo, said that the war found him at a Petersburg cafe.
