Details on the foiled assassination attempt on Alexander Zakharchenko’s life have not yet been disclosed, but the information will be provided during a press conference on Friday, reported the press service of the head of the self-proclaimed DPR.
Earlier, the Ministry of State Security of the DPR stated that an attempt to commit a subversive terrorist act against Zakharchenko was foiled. The detained group arrived from the territory controlled by Kiev, who had with them a powerful explosive device disguised as a piece of furniture.
“The press-service of the head of the DPR officially confirmed the fact of a terrorist attack aimed at the head of DPR Alexander Zakharchenko. In the interests of the investigation, this fact was not confirmed by the press service earlier. All comments and details from the media will be received during a press conference on the 29th of April,” said the press service.
According to the failed terrorist plot, the explosion was supposed to happen in the “Artemida” shooting complex in Donetsk during the next head of the DPR’s visit, reported the state security.
