It’s about it

  • The Russian-appointed deputy governor of the Kherson region died on Wednesday.

  • According to Russian reports, Kirill Stremoussow died in a car accident – his driver survived.

  • Ukrainian experts speculate that the accident was staged.

The deputy head of the administration set up by Moscow in southern Ukraine’s Kherson region is dead, according to official Russian sources. Kirill Stremoussow died in a traffic accident on Wednesday, crew chief Volodymyr Saldo said in a video message distributed by the Telegram news service. He did not provide details. Russian state news agencies Tass and Ria Novosti previously reported the death of a 45-year-old man, citing occupation forces in Kherson.

Was the death staged?

The deputy governor died just hours before Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced the withdrawal from the left bank of the Dnieper River. Shoigu gave the reason that the units on the left bank could no longer be supplied.

According to official information, Stremoussow should have been in the car involved in the accident. According to Russian information, the politician has died. However, observers believe that the death of the deputy governor of Kherson was staged. Even before Shoigu’s announcement, journalist Illia Ponomarenko suspected that the Russian collaborator Stremousov had been forced to disappear before the retreat.

The driver apparently survived the accident

This theory is also supported by the fact that the driver Stremoussow apparently survived the accident relatively unscathed. He personally reported the death of the deputy governor of the Kherson region to the Russian war blogger “WarGonzo”.

A video message from Stremouss’ superior, the governor of the Kherson region, also raises questions. Volodymyr Saldo announces the death of Kirill Stremusov in a video. As the Telegram channel “Ostorozhno_novosti” writes, the metadata of the video shows that the sad news was recorded two hours before the first reports of Stremousov’s death, namely at 14:01 Moscow time. The Kremlin-linked media “Readovka” was the first to report the death of the deputy governor at 16:01 Moscow time.
