As Vladimir Rogov, a member of the main council of the administration of the Zaporozhye region, told RIA Novosti, the assassination attempt took place early in the morning, when Volyk was leaving his entrance.

It is clarified that the deputy head was not injured. 

“It was an IED, one of those used by Zelensky’s terrorists.

It was filled with striking elements, only by a lucky chance neither he nor the inhabitants were injured, ”said Rogov.

The power of an improvised explosive device, according to preliminary estimates, was about 2.5 kg of TNT.

Earlier, the FSB prevented a series of terrorist attacks in crowded places in the Zaporozhye region.

In November, it was reported that counterintelligence managed to uncover a network of Ukrainian special services in the LPR after the arrest of an SBU agent who attempted to assassinate the head of the Belovodsky district of the republic on the eve of a referendum on joining Russia.
