A platoon commander of the Russian-occupation police force has been killed in the Russian-occupied Ukrainian town of Skadovsk in Kherson Oblast, regional council member Sergiy Khlan reported on Facebook on March 19.
Khlan said explosives had been placed under the wing of the victim's car.
Video circulating on March 19 on social media of the claimed car bombing showed what appeared to be a police patrol jeep on fire, the vehicle having been significantly damaged from what looked like the results of a powerful explosion.
The reports of the murder of the "platoon commander of the PPS" (patrol police service) were also confirmed by the occupation authorities’ Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in Kherson Oblast.
According to the Russian occupation administration, the assassination took place on March 17.
The Russian occupation policeman died on the spot, and his wife and daughter were injured.
