In response to the killing of a war blogger in St. Petersburg, Russia has added a lady to its list of wanted persons and launched a worldwide search for her. This has increased tensions with Ukraine, which denies any connection.
Russia has named a woman a suspect in the recent killing of a prominent war blogger in St. Petersburg. The woman, identified in media reports, is on the wanted list and has been put under international search. The Russian authorities claim that the woman delivered the bomb that killed the blogger and injured over 30 others. They have accused Ukraine’s intelligence services of involvement in the attack, although Ukraine denies any responsibility and cites “domestic terrorism.” The incident has further escalated the already fraught relationship between Russia and Ukraine, which have been at odds since the annexation of Crimea in 2014. As the investigation continues, tensions between the two countries will likely remain high.
