Russian investigators on Tuesday formally charged Darya Trepova, a 26-year-old woman, with terrorism over the killing of the influential pro-war military blogger Vladlen Tatarsky in a bomb blast in St Petersburg.
Tatarsky, whose real name was Maxim Fomin, was killed on Sunday by a bomb blast as he was hosting a discussion with other pro-war commentators at a cafe on the banks of the Neva River in the historic heart of St Petersburg.
