The prosecutor general of the Russia-backed Luhansk People’s Republic, (LPR), in eastern Ukraine was killed by a car bomb.
The bomb explosion at Sergei Gorenko’s office on Friday resulted in the deaths of his deputy Yekaterina Stecklenko and his prosecutor general Sergei Gorenko.
Five Russian-installed officials were killed so far in the Russian-held regions of Ukraine.
According to Interfax, a spokesperson for the emergency services stated that Sergei Gorenko, LNR Prosecutor General, died after an explosion at his office.

According to the state-run TASS news agency, a colonel from the separatist Luhansk Interior Ministry stated that Gorenko’s deputy Steglenko was also killed in the car bomb.
LNR head Leonid Paechnik’s press service stated on Telegraph that “Today, Prosecutor general Sergei Gorenko, and his deputy Yekaterina Stglenko, died due to a terrorist act.”
Pro-Russian figures claim responsibility for the attack on the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office regarding sabotage.
Pasechnik stated that this “showed Kyiv’s regime had exceeded all possible limits.”
Mykhailo Podolyak, the Ukrainian presidential adviser, stated that the attack should be viewed “as a showdown of local organized criminal organizations that could not share looted properties before escaping on a large scale.” Or as the Russian Federations’ purge of witnesses to war crime crimes.
An official of NATO: “85% of Russian troops are now fighting in Ukraine.”
Rob Bauer, a Dutch Admiral, who chairs NATO’s Military Committee, stated that around 85% of Russian troops are currently fighting in Ukraine. This limits Moscow’s ability to expand its military presence without allowing general mobilization by declaring war.
He referred to Ukraine’s successful counter-offensive that has seen it capture large areas of territory.
“Every Russian unit receives its direction from higher authorities. If something changes, they wait for a new order. The Ukrainians advanced so fast that the Russians couldn’t get (new commands) and had to retreat.
