Shocking footage shows the moment a statue laden with bombs exploded in a St Petersburg cafe, killing one of Vladimir ‘s propagandists.
Vladlen Tatarsky, whose real name is Maxim Fomin, was blown to pieces on Sunday after Daria Trepova, 26, reportedly entered the venue and handed him a small statue of himself.
Video has emerged showing the pro-war blogger engaging with Trepova, who was arrested yesterday on suspicion of his murder, and saying ‘what a handsome guy, is that me?’ moments before the explosion ripped through the Street Food No 1 cafe and killed him.
Further images shows Tatarsky placing the statuette back into its packaging on a small table before it exploded.
A third video shows the former art student emerging minutes later from the cafe alongside blood-soaked victims of the explosion, before leaving the scene alone.
