Putin’s top police officer was seriously injured after a bomb exploded in a barber shop.

Major General Igor Kornet, 50, was one of five injured after a grenade was thrown at the Brothers Barber shop in the Russian-held Luhansk region of Ukraine.

It was later reported that he was on a ventilator and suffering from brain and chest injuries, blast wounds and open lacerations to his limbs.

Kornet is the acting interior minister in Luhansk, which Vladimir Putin annexed and claims is now part of Russia.

TASS, a state-run Russian news agency, said five were injured and three were in critical condition.

The blast came after the region was hit by UK-supplied Storm Shadow missiles in a previous attack.

According to unconfirmed reports, Kornet has died, but local officials insist he is still alive.

Prominent blogger Anatoly Shariy said: “According to my information, Kornet has disappeared.”

“But officially they report that he was wounded.”

This was contradicted by an LPR health official who said: ‘He is alive.’ His condition is stable.’

It is believed that Kornet was the target, but others say it could be taken as a warning to the head of the Wagner mercenary army, Yevgeny Prigozhin, given their friendship.
