Pro-Putin blogger Vladlen Tatarsky whacked

Vladlen Tatarsky died when a blast tore through the cafe where he was appearing as a guest of a pro-war group. Tatarsky was killed by a device hidden in a figurine presented to him by a woman before the blast.
Tatarsky is the pen name for Maxim Fomin, who had accumulated more than 560,000 followers on Telegram. A St Petersburg website said the explosion took place at a cafe that once belonged to Yevgeny Prigozhin, founder of the Wagner Group.
