    I doubt the SVR will just let this go.

    The head of Ukraine's security services, Vasyl Hrytsak, told reporters the "murder" had been staged to expose Russian agents.
    "According to information received by the Ukrainian security service, the killing of Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko was ordered by the Russian security services themselves," Mr Hrytsak said.

    I doubt the SVR will just let this go.

      How exactly will a staged murder expose anybody though? I'm a bit confused. Unless we're not supposed to know that quite yet lol

    Will be interesting to see how exactly this happened.

    Mr Babchenko was reportedly found by his wife bleeding at the entrance to his block of flats, shot several times in the back, and died in an ambulance.

    The journalist apparently did not tell his wife that the murder had been staged. "Special apologies to my wife," he said.

      That's like the most understated apology of the century: "Special apologies to my wife." At least they were special.
