‘Murdered’ Russian journalist turns up alive

“Arkady Babchenko, a Russian journalist and Kremlin critic who was reported murdered in Ukraine on Tuesday appeared — alive — at a news conference on Wednesday at which Ukrainian authorities said they had staged the killing as a sting operation. Babchenko’s resurrection came less than 24 hours after Ukrainian authorities reported he had been shot and killed outside his apartment in Kiev, where he has lived since fleeing political harassment in Russia in 2017.

Anton Gerashchenko, a member of the Ukrainian parliament and adviser to Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, who was among the first to report the murder on Tuesday, wrote on Twitter Wednesday that two suspects had been arrested thanks to a ‘brilliant operation’ by Ukrainian law enforcement — a would-be assassin and a suspect who organized the planned killing.”
