Cop Killed by Bomb in Russian-Controlled Ukrainian City

A bomb explosion in the Russian-controlled city of Berdiansk in Ukraine killed the deputy-chief of traffic police after being wounded. The incident was reported by local Russian officials.

The Russian-installed Berdiansk authorities said in a statement that Alexander Kolesnikov had been killed in a “terrorist attack” that they blamed on Ukraine.

Ukraine’s defence ministry and military intelligence did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The port city of Berdiansk has a population of around 100,000 people. Located on the Azov Sea, the city was captured by Russia in February when the war began. The incident there was the latest in a series of apparent assassinations of Russian-backed officials in occupied areas of Ukraine.

The series of killings has been continuing for a while now as just this month the deputy head of the Russian-imposed administration of Nova Khakovka was shot dead in his home, while in June a senior official in the Kherson region’s Russian-installed administration was killed in a car bomb.
