A place of residence of a Russian invader and Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) agent in charge of the customs of the Russian-backed "Luhansk People's Republic" ("LPR"), Yuriy Afanasyevskiy, has been bombed in occupied Luhansk Oblast. He is currently in intensive care.

The Russian proxy is a major general and an agent of the FSB central office, known for becoming the "financier" of Leonid Pasechnik, the head of the self-proclaimed "LPR".

Afanasyevskiy laundered money to fund paramilitary groups fighting against Ukraine. He was subject to personal sanctions imposed by the EU, the UK, Canada, Switzerland and Japan.

Sources confirm that the SSU was behind the explosion.
