Famous propagandist killed in an explosion in St Petersburg cafe that belonged to Wagner Group owner.

Vladlen Tatarsky, a Russian "war correspondent" (military blogger), has been killed in an explosion in a cafe in central St Petersburg that formerly belonged to Yevgeny Prigozhin, the owner of the Wagner Group Private Military Company. Thirty people were injured.

Russian emergency services told TASS that the explosion occurred in the Street-Bar cafe on Universitetskaya Embankment in central St Petersburg.

TASS later reported, citing law enforcement officers, that an explosive device containing over 200 g of TNT had gone off in the cafe.

The number of casualties currently stands at 16. One person was killed in the explosion.

Fontanka reported that the cafe used to belong to Yevgeny Prigozhin. A Cyber Z Front "discussion club" holds meetings in the restaurant on weekends.

Mykhailo Podoliak, the advisor to the Office of the President of Ukraine, said that in Russia, "spiders stuck in a jar are devouring one another."

"The Russian Federation sets off… Spiders stuck in a jar are devouring one another. The question of when domestic terrorism would become a tool of domestic political struggle in the tightly controlled country was a question of time, like waiting for an abscess to burst. There are irreversible changes and great turmoil ahead of Russia. We, meanwhile, have our work to do," Podoliak wrote.
