Russian authorities blamed Ukrainian intelligence agencies for orchestrating a bombing at a St. Petersburg cafe that killed a Russian military blogger who fervently supported Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine and arrested a suspect accused of involvement in the attack.

Ukrainian authorities did not directly respond to the accusation.

But President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Monday that he doesn’t think about events in Russia and a senior official earlier described the bombing as part of Russia’s internal turmoil.

Officials said Vladlen Tatarsky was killed Sunday as he was leading a discussion at a cafe on the banks of the Neva River in the historic heart of Russia’s second-largest city.

Tatarsky had filed regular reports from the front lines in Ukraine.
