Plotnitsky’s Attackers Used Bomb Equivalent to 10-15 Kilos of TNT

00 Trip-wire pipe bomb. 20.02.14


Today, the LNR MGB announced in re the assassination attempt against LNR Head of State I V Plotnitsky:

They placed the charge on the outer surface of a column, facing the roadway, at a height of 1 metre off the ground. We estimate that the bomb was equivalent to up to 10-15 kilogrammes of TNT. They placed the device near a traffic light. In addition, we have reason to believe that the attackers used plastic explosives based on RDX. We’re considering several versions of the incident, including it being an action of a Ukrainian terrorist group. We’re continuing the investigation.
