They tried to kill a State Duma deputy using HIMARS

Deputy of the State Duma of Russia, Kolesnikov, reported an attempt on his life, organized by Ukrainian nationalists in the zone of a special military operation in the Zaporozhye direction. According to him, the incident occurred during shelling from the Khimars multiple launch rocket system. At this time, the deputy and his team were on the move, which accidentally saved their lives.

Kolesnikov told RIA Novosti journalists that the attack occurred in the afternoon when they went to work:

“The blow came during the day. At this point we just left for work. By luck we weren’t here.”

He also suggested that the Ukrainian command could be tracking his movements, since this is the second such incident in the last two months.

The day before, Ukrainian troops shelled the village of Tokmak in the Zaporozhye region, resulting in the death of five civilians, including a child. As a result of the attack, 25 people with injuries of varying severity were taken to medical facilities. According to the head of the region, Evgeny Balitsky, work to clear the rubble continues and there may still be people under it.
