On the morning of November 10, an explosion occurred in the temporarily occupied Mariupol, Donetsk region. According to preliminary data, the car of one of the occupation corps police officers was blown up. Russians say the car burned down "due to a malfunction"
Advisor to the mayor of Mariupol, Petro Andriushchenko, shared the information on Telegram.
“An explosion in Mariupol. A car of one of the police officers of the occupying corps was blown up on Metalurhiv Avenue. More details later,” he wrote and added “In the morning, Mariupol Resistance reported that it had ‘already delivered a gift’ to the police to celebrate Police Day in Russia. We'll see if this is the last surprise for today. Finally, some good news from the city.”
Instead, the Russian news outlet RIA Novosti claims that the car burned down due to a malfunction of gas equipment.
According to preliminary reports, there were no casualties, and reports that the car had been blown up are not true, according to the Russian media.
The resistance movement of Mariupol commented on the situation as well.
“Today the police are celebrating their professional holiday in Mariupol. We have already sent them our present. Now it remains to be seen - will they treat their comrades/colleagues or keep it all to themselves? Well, given the potentially hospitalized…Happy f**king holiday, Russians...” the Telegram post said.
On November 9, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate, Andriy Yusov, commented on the liquidation of Luhansk collaborator Mikhail Filiponenko and said that it was a signal to all war criminals.
"A war criminal has been eliminated. This is a very important signal to all traitors, collaborators, and all those who were involved in war crimes that a just punishment is inevitable. There are two options: surrender or wait for retribution to come in another way," he said.
