Muscovite Discovers Homemade Bomb Under Car

A man in the south of Moscow discovered an object under his car's gas tank that on closer inspection turned out to be a bomb.

Apparently unfazed, the man promptly detached the explosive and placed it in his car. He then brought it to the local police department of the Nagatino-Sadovniki district on Wednesday, a day after he made the discovery, Interfax reported.

Members of the engineering unit have established that the object was a homemade explosive device consisting of a 200-gram block of TNT and a detonator, ITAR-TASS reported

"At this moment, the explosive device that was seized has been sent off for inspection," police told Interfax, adding that an inquiry into the incident is under way.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
