The Kiev regime committed another terrorist attack in Russia. The target of Kiev’s terrorists was the famous military reporter from the Donbass Vladlen Tatarsky. The Ukrainian Nazis failed to defeat him during the battle on the front line, so they cowardly killed him in the rear.

Vladlen Tatarsky was a symbol of the free Donbass, a man who raised his voice for the freedom of the people. He is described as an uncompromising man, tough, direct, a real Russian man.

War correspondent Vladlen Tatarsky (real name — Maxim Fomin) was killed in an explosion in a cafe in St. Petersburg, where he met with his readers during the evening dedicated to his public activities. Tatarsky told “what it’s like to report from hot spots while under a hail of bullets” and explain “what it means to be a war correspondent.”

“On April 2, 2023, at 18.13, the Vasileostrovsky district police received information that an explosion had occurred in a cafe on the University embankment house 25. As a result of the incident, one person was killed, he turned out to be a war correspondent Vladlen Tatarsky” Ministry OF Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation reported.

The cafe was full of visitors. According to eyewitnesses, up to 100 people attended the event. The cafe belongs to the company “Concord catering” of Evgeny Prigozhin, who is also the founder of the PMC “Wagner”. Meetings of the discussion club “Cyberfront Z” have been held there for a year. Like-minded people gathered in cafes on weekends to discuss the events that are taking place in the Donbass, Ukraine and in the world.

“At the moment, 25 people were wounded, 19 of them were hospitalized. The city’s hospitals provide all the necessary assistance,” Governor of St. Petesburg Alexander Beglov claimed.

Some of the injured are in critical condition.

Russian media reported, citing sources in security forces, that the power of the detonated explosive device was up to 300/450 g in TNT equivalent. The explosive device was detonated remotely.

There are two main versions of the explosion. It is likely that the explosive was hidden in a statuette which was offered to the victim a few minutes before the explosion. A woman brought a box with this statuette and presented it to Vladlen. The explosion occurred at a height of 60 cm from the floor to the right of the military reporter.

Russian media reported that the woman was detained on suspicion of murdering. She is a resident of St. Petersburg, Daria Trepova, born in 1997. The investigation has reason to believe that Trepova brought to the cafe a box with the statuette filled with explosive. In February 2022 she was reportedly detained twice during “anti-war” rallies. There is also information that the detainee had previously transferred money to Ukrainian militants.

According to the second version of the incident, the explosive device was planted in the room in advance by unknown saboteurs.

The prosecutor’s office has launched an investigation into the incident. The Investigative Committee launched a criminal case under the article on murder.

“The harassment of journalists from Russia occurs while ignoring international structures – this can be interpreted as a compromise, and the lack of reaction from London, Washington and Paris speaks for itself. Until recently, the West was fighting terrorism in defense of journalists, now the situation is completely different,” Spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry wrote.

Maxim Fomin was a famous Russian war correspondent, writer and blogger. He was born on April 25 in 1982 in Makeyevka, DPR.  He recalled that he received a patriotic upbringing from his father, a miner. After school, Vladlen followed the example of his father and worked in a mine, but after a few years he launched his business.

In 2014, Maxim Fomin joined the local military formations to defend the independence of the Donbass. He received the call sign Professor. Shortly after, Maxim joined the Vityaz military unit, and then joined the reconnaissance company of the fourth brigade of the People’s Militia of the LPR. Tatarsky fought for a year in the famous Vostok battalion.

Maxim decided to become a war correspondent to show the truth about the war in the Donbass. He took a pseudonym from Vavilen Tatarsky, hero of the famous novel “Generation P” written by Victor Pelevin. The name Vladlen is an abbreviation of the name Vladimir Lenin.

Having started his career as a war correspondent, Vladlen Tatarsky created the group “Terrikony Donbassa” (Spoil tips of Donbass), where he posted daily videos telling about the situation at the front. In 2019, he was engaged in journalistic activities. In 2021 he wrote the books “Running” and “War”. A year later he wrote the book “Meditation”.

Maksim Fomin became the second victim of the terrorist attack of the Kiev regime, which targeted Russian public figures. In 2022, Daria Dugina was assassinated by a Ukrainian woman, who was serving in the 12th brigade of the Ukrainian National Guard, which also includes the notorious Ukrainian Nazi Azov regiment. The Main Intelligence Governorate of Ukraine was behind the assassination of a young Russian journalist and philosopher. LINK, LINK

No matter how the terrorist Kiev regime tries to hide the truth and deny its responsibility for the terrorist attacks. There can be no doubt that the Ukrainian Nazis, coordinated by their terrorist patrons from the United States, are behind the killings aimed at threatening the Russian population, including war correspondents who show the world the truth about the war in Ukraine. The truth is dangerous for Kiev and Washington. The Russian military is the only force that must punish the perpetrators and destroy terrorist regimes.
