Comment by the Information and Press Department on the death of Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko

Tuesday, 29 May 2018 14:36

According to reports from Kiev, journalist Arkady Babchenko, a Russian citizen permanently based in Ukraine, was shot dead today in an armed assault in Kiev. The level of violence and the number of murders of media workers in that country is steadily rising, and their investigations do not lead to punishment of criminals.

Bloody crimes and total impunity have become routine for the Kiev regime. We demand that the Ukrainian authorities make every effort to promptly investigate the crime.

We also hope that the relevant international institutions and NGOs will monitor the investigation process.

We express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Arkady Babchenko.
