As reported by Censor.NET, the Russian media showed footage captured shortly after the explosion in Separ café, which claimed life of the terrorists’ chieftain.
The video shows the café being damaged by a powerful blast and presumably the body of Zakharchenko near the ambulance.
Terrorists’ leader Zakharchenko was killed in a blast in Donetsk-based cafe on Aug. 31. So called "finance minister" of the self-proclaimed republic, Alexander Timofeev aka Tashkent, was also severely wounded in explosion.
Ukraine’s Security Service said Zakharchenko was killed as a result of either a power struggle among the terrorists or was eliminated by the Russian secret services.
The Russian Foreign Ministry, as is customary, said that it were the warmongers from among the Ukrainian authorities who were behind Zakharchenko’s assassination.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that this "provocation" was aimed at disrupting efforts to settle the conflict in the Donbas.
So-called "First Deputy Prime Minister of the DPR" Dmitry Trapeznikov, who prior to the Russian-Ukrainian war was in charge of the football fan organization of tycoon Rinat Akhmetov's FC Shakhtar Donetsk, was appointed acting head of the fake republic.
