Details: Moscow investigators have initiated a criminal case after an explosion targeting a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in northern Moscow. The owner of the vehicle has reportedly been injured.


TASS, citing sources in the operational services, said the vehicle that was struck by an explosion on Korovinskoye Road in Moscow belongs to a former employee of the SSU.

The source reported that the explosion occurred when the man started the car.

Investigators and forensic experts of Russia's Investigative Committee in Moscow Oblast, together with operational services, are examining the scene, and a number of examinations will be scheduled shortly.


  • Vasyl Prozorov was dismissed from the SSU in 2018 on the grounds of incompetence.
  • In 2019, on 25 March, the SSU's anniversary, a press conference was held in Russia featuring Prozorov, who was described as a defector of the SSU.
  • Prozorov said he worked for the SSU from 1999 to 2018 and in the SSU’s central office and the ATO headquarters since 2014. "I voluntarily assisted the Russian Federation in obtaining information for ideological reasons since April 2014," he said at the time. [The ATO or Anti-Terrorist Operation is a term used from 2014 to 2018 by the media, the government of Ukraine and the OSCE to identify combat actions in parts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts against Russian military forces and pro-Russian separatists – ed.]
  • The former SSU officer also made a number of claims, including about the alleged involvement of Ukraine in the crash of the Malaysian Boeing in Donbas, the "secret prisons of the SSU", and the participation of Ukrainian special services in the murder of the leaders of the "L/DPR" (Russian-backed "Luhansk/Donetsk People's Republics") illegal armed groups.
