Two Russian occupation officials, along with two others, have been injured in an explosion that rocked Russia-occupied Melitopol, Zaporizhzhya region, local news outlet RIA-Melitopol reported on June 13.

The explosion occurred at 5:45 p.m. on June 12, near the offices of the occupation authorities “interior ministry” in Melitopol.

Local occupation enforcers, appointed by the Russian occupation authorities, have not revealed many details relating to the incident. However, initial reports suggest that around 0.8 kilogram of TNT-equivalent explosives were set off by a window at a residence believed to belong to Alexey Selivanov, a Ukrainian collaborator who has been appointed “deputy head” of the Zaporizhzhya occupation enforcers.

RIA-Melitopol speculates that Selivanov could have staged the explosion, in order to shift blame towards Ukraine. Another possibility is that it could have been the work of Ukrainian insurgents.
