THIS is the dramatic moment a Putin "collaborator" was wiped out by Ukrainian resistance forces in a car bomb attack.

Askyar Laishev worked for Ukraine's security service before joining the Moscow-backed Luhansk People's Republic as head of intelligence in 2014.

Members of Ukraine's National Resistance in the Donbas got revenge by bombing his car as he drove through the city on August 11.

Laishev reportedly managed to get out of the car after the blast – but died days later in hospital.

The National Resistance said: "We emphasise once again that collaborationism is harmful to your health, so every traitor has vain hopes that retribution will not come to him."

CCTV video released by local media appears to show Laishev's car explode on a street in Luhansk, which fell under Russian control in early July.

It comes after a top pro-Putin official in occupied Ukraine was also killed in a car bomb – just days after the daughter of the tyrant's war guru was assassinated.

The blast which killed Ivan Sushko, 40 was captured on CCTV.

Sushko – who was married with a daughter – was an official in the occupied Zaporizhzhia region and was killed when an explosion ripped apart his car.

He was reportedly taking his adopted daughter to kindergarten when he was targeted but she was left unharmed.

Sushko was head of the Mykhailivka – military-civilian administration – in the region which is home to Europe’s largest nuclear plant.

“An explosive device had been placed under his car seat,” said senior Russian official in the occupied region, Vladimir Rogov.

Putin loyalist Rogov said the attack was carried out by “saboteurs” in the region, and vowed to track them down.
