"Luhansk People's Republic Deputy" Popov eliminated by the Security Service of Ukraine: all details
Security Service of Ukraine officers are responsible for the elimination of Oleh Popov, a "deputy" in the quasi-republic of Luhansk, in the center of the occupied city. The so-called politician, who was, in fact, a militant and assistant to war criminals, was a legitimate target for law enforcement.
This information was disclosed by sources within the law enforcement structure to OBOZ.UA. Before acquiring the "mandate," Popov had overseen numerous Russian volunteer battalions, led illegal armed groups, and participated in the killing of Ukrainians.
"In addition, this character was the head of the Committee on State Security and Defense. The explosion of the head is the best advertisement for the effectiveness of this committee," our sources ironically summarized.
As a reminder, Popov's car, with him inside, exploded on December 6. Initially, propaganda outlets claimed that the pseudo-deputy was injured but survived, yet the lethal consequences of the explosion for the militant could not be concealed.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, rumors about Popov's assassination in the "Luhansk People's Republic" had been circulating last fall. However, details of the assassination attempt were not disclosed at the time and were not confirmed.
