A young Russian politician and her husband died in the back of their 4×4 when he set off a bomb in an envious rage, police say.
A member of Vladimir Putin’s United Russia Party, Oksana Bobrovskaya, 30, was killed alongside husband Nikita Bobrovsky and were said to be engaging in some sexual activity.
It is believed they were rowing at the time and Nikita had previously accused his wife of cheating on him with a rich lover, according to police sources.
Reports claimed Nikita was holding “a kind of grenade or a piece of TNT” and eyewitnesses who rushed to the scene say the pair were both in the back seat of a white Toyota RAV4 at the scene of the blast.
The explosion blew out all the windows, barring the front windscreen and it’s believed that when both the politician and her husband “were naked below the belt” when their bodies were removed from the car reported The Siberian Times.
Most shocking of all is that their four-year-old daughter has now been orphaned by the tragedy. City mayor Anatoly Lokot said her death was due to family problems and confirmed that it was ‘not a terrorist act’.
Eyewitness Evgenia Romanova said:
I looked out of the window and saw this all carnage. My husband went down to the street, and I looked through the window. It was horrific something you would not wish anyone to see. No heads, glass covered in blood — a nightmare.
Another witness added that the female politician’s face was “almost not visible” after the blast.
Bobrovskaya was working as a regional legislative deputy in Novosibirsk, Siberia, whilst her husband – believed to be in his early 30’s – was a former special services officer in the Russian military.
However, reports say he had been out of work, which strained their relationship as she ended up being the sole breadwinner.
LifeNews reported an anonymous police source said forensic evidence showed the couple did have sex before the blast.
