Russia arrests girl over loss of life of high navy blogger

MOSCOW: Russia on Monday detained a 26-year-old girl after an explosion that killed a high Russian navy blogger, saying the assault was orchestrated by Ukraine with assist from supporters of jailed critic Alexei Navalny.

Ukraine has blamed Russia’s home in-fighting for the blast in a Saint Petersburg cafe that wounded greater than 30 individuals and killed Vladlen Tatarsky, an energetic promoter of the Ukraine offensive.

The Russian Investigative Committee launched a video of the arrest of 26-year-old Darya Trepova, who they mentioned “holds opposition views and is a supporter of the Anti-Corruption Basis,” referring to Navalny’s banned organisation.

The footage exhibits a younger blond girl getting in an elevator with a suitcase after which cuts to her being led right into a room by males wearing darkish uniforms.
