Russian Journalist Reported Dead Turns Up At News Conference

(Ukraine) – A Russian journalist showed up at a news conference today in Ukraine the day after he was reportedly assassinated. It appears to be all part of a plot on the part of the Ukrainian security service.

Arkady  Babchenko, along with the police agency, faked his own death in an effort to catch the people who were making death threats against him. Police reported yesterday that the Kremlin critic and veteran Russian war correspondent had been shot three times and died on his way to the hospital.

The plot had reportedly been in the works for nearly two months and even Babchenko’s family didn’t know about it. Police did make one arrest in connection with the covert operation.
