Surveillance footage has captured the moment a Ukrainian “traitor” was blown up in a car bomb in the Russian held area of Staroblisk.
Ukrainian resistance forces assassinated Askyar Laishev who previously worked Kyiv’s internal security service and then defected to Vladimir Putin’s backed Luhansk People’s Republic in the war torn Donbas region and then became their head of intelligence in 2014.

On 11 August the Ukraine’s National Resistance blew up his car and the underground fighters said he managed to get out the car, as he was on fire and then died a few days later in hospital.
The National Resistance said, “We emphasize once again that collaborationism is harmful to your health, so every traitor has vain hopes that retribution will not come to him.”

This is the second assassination in a week after a Vladimir Putin official Ivan Sushko was also blown to bits in a car bomb attack in Zaporizhzhia.
Zaporizhzhia is where Europe’s largest nuclear power plant and Sushko was placed as the head of Mykhailivka “military-civilian administration” by Russian forces in May.
