A car explosion in Russian-occupied Mariupol at 8:07, targeting the car of a Russian top-commander, was organized by the Ukrainian resistance, according to the legitimate mayor of Mariupol Vadym Boichenko.
The assassination attempt was targeted at Mihail Moskvin, the quisling police chief of occupied Mariupol, Russia’s state-controlled TASS reported citing the “law enforcement” structures of Russia’s proxy “Donetsk People’s Republic.”

In February 2023, there were speculations that Ukraine had received capabilities for long-distance strikes as a series of explosions occurred in Mariupol, occupied by Russia since May 2022.
Bombing collaborators is a regular activity of the partisan movement of Ukraine’s Russian-occupied territories. On 3 February, a car explosion killed a policeman collaborating with Russian occupiers in the Ukrainian city of Enerhodar.
