Ukranian journalist shot dead by Russians

Russian journalist and Putin critic Arkady Babchenko SHOT DEAD in apartment

Cops confirmed Arkady Babchenko was killed at his Kiev apartment in the Ukrainian capital.

The reporter's wife found him bleeding at the apartment on Tuesday and called an ambulance, but Babchenko died on the way to a hospital.

The 41-year-old served in the Russian army during the first separatist war in Chechnya during the 1990s and later became a journalist.

He worked as a military correspondent for several Russian media outlets.

Babchenko had been scathingly critical of the Kremlin in recent years.

Putin :dolefrog:

But wait


A Russian journalist who was reported to have been shot dead in Kiev has turned up alive at a news conference in Ukraine.

Arkady Babchenko emerged at a police press conference on Wednesday afternoon in front of journalists who had been expecting updates on the investigation into his murder.

Vasily Gritsak, the head of the Ukrainian security service, told reporters the agency had faked Babchenko’s death to catch people who were trying to kill him.

Someone made up a big lie to discredit Putin, well I never. I'm sure this sort of thing has never happened before :yes:

Or he participated on a plot to expose Putin. Maybe thats right, maybe you're right.

Perhaps we shouldnt leap to the conclusion that supports our biases though.....

The Ukrainian government's faked assassination of an anti-Putin journalist has raised more questions after one of the would-be killers was revealed to be a well-known Russia-hating former monk.

Boris L. German, 50, appeared in court accused of hiring former monk Oleksiy Tsimbalyuk to carry out the killing of Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko. Tsimbalyuk is alleged to have reported the alleged hit to Ukrainian counter intelligence, the SBU.

Yet Facebook pictures of Tsimbalyuk in the uniform of Right Sector, a Ukrainian ultranationalist that the Kremlin portray as a neo-Nazi group, and as a former deacon in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, has cast doubt on Putin's involvement.

The New York Times reports there is a 10-minute video on Tsimbalyuk's Facebook, where he claims killing Russia-backed militias in eastern Ukraine was an 'act of mercy'. Tsimbalyuk's prominent anti-Kremlin rhetoric has raised doubts as to why Russia would hire him to carry out the planned killing.

Remember, nations don't exist and borders are racist, so all you're basically watching is a random group of fellow humans playing a meaningless game. If they win, 'England' hasn't won, you haven't won, that group of 11 people has won. That's all.
