Ukraine staged the murder of journalist Arkady Babchenko, who magically appeared the day after he was reported to have been shot to death. Babchencko claimed that there was a Russian plot to kill him after he fled Russia in 2017 because he criticized Putin. Russia’s foreign ministry condemned the staged assassination, calling it “obviously yet another anti-Russian provocation” that comes right on the heels of the botched assassination of former spy Skripal.

It will now likely seize on this deception in Kiev to strengthen its claim in that case, and in others.
