Russian journalist fatally shot in Ukrainian capital

"He said in that press conference that one of those people had been captured, and the security services - the ones who staged his death - they said that they were trying to catch Russian agents", he added.

He went on to thank the Ukrainian Security Service, the SBU, for saving his life and said the most important thing was that what he called other big acts of terror had been thwarted.

The book led to work as a war correspondent for a number of Russian newspapers, reporting on the country's involvement in one nearby conflict after another: the Second Chechen War, the 2008 invasion of Georgia, and 2010 ethnic clashes in Kyrgystan.

A top lawmaker says Russia is willing to help Ukraine investigate the murder of a Russian journalist.

The reports of Babchenko's assassination took off yesterday when his wife Olechka called the hospital after finding his bullet-ridden body in their Kiev apartment.

As a critic of the Kremlin Babchenko stood in unofficial elections organised by the opposition in 2012.

The Cavs also were just 5-of-17 shooting off James' passes, the lowest percentage for Cleveland in the past three postseasons. It sure has looked at times as though he relishes these moments, though James said otherwise at Cavaliers shootaround Friday.

Police said the 41-year-old died of multiple gunshots wounds to his back.

He had been denounced by pro-government politicians in Russia over comments on social media about the Russian bombing of Syria, and over his characterization of Russia as an aggressor toward Ukraine.

Russian Foreign Ministry and state-controlled media have begun pushing an alternate reality version of the gunning down in Kyiv of Arkady Babchenko, Russian journalist and outspoken critic of Russia's aggression against Ukraine and the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"I am sorry, but there were no options here", Babchenko said.

Babchenko left Russian Federation in February 2017, saying he was receiving threats and concerned he might be jailed. The final straw, he wrote in a Facebook post later reprinted by the Guardian, came just a few months before he fled, following his December 2016 post after the crash of a Russian military plane in the Black Sea.

In the fall, Babchenko moved to Kiev, where he worked as a host for the Crimean Tatar TV station, ATR.
