May 7, 2023

On Saturday, May 6, the car of Russian writer Zakhar Prilepin was blown up in Nizhny Novgorod.


This was reported by propaganda media.

According to preliminary data, unknown persons blew up an Audi Q7, in which Zakhar Prilepin, a Russian writer and former "deputy commander of the 'special forces' battalion of the 'DPR' group for work with personnel," was sitting. An explosive device under the bottom of the car went off.

Russian Telegram channels report that the incident occurred at about 10:40 am near the town of Bor, Nizhny Novgorod region. The driver of the car was killed in the explosion.

According to the sources of the RBC propaganda outlet, Prilepin was returning to Moscow from the territories of Ukraine captured by Russia.

"Today he crossed a checkpoint on the border territory. Presumably, the suspects were accompanying Prilepin's car. It is known that he stopped to eat in the Nizhny Novgorod region on the way. Immediately after he continued driving, an explosion occurred," the report said.

In addition, according to Mash, the explosive device was detonated remotely. The explosion was "quite strong" and a crater was formed at the site of the explosion.

"Prilepin was being followed and waited for him to drop his daughter off from the car. After the detonation, the car overturned," the TG channel writes.

As a result of the explosion, Prilepin sustained "leg injuries". His condition is currently assessed as serious.

It is known that Prilepin is a well-known Russian writer and propagandist who has supported the separatists since 2014 and actively advocates war. In January, it was reported that he had allegedly "signed a contract with the Rosgvardia" and "went to fight in Ukraine."
