    Sadly, I imagine the whole exercise will now have only delayed his demise.

    Was thinking the same, reading the article. A lifetime in hiding, at best.

    Then you'll just love the additional details that, last time I checked, the BBC didnt put in their story.

    This is apparently a full transcript of what Babchenko said at the press conference:

    ‘I’m still alive, and I’m not going anywhere’: Here's what Arkady Babchenko said upon returning ‘from the dead’

    Yes, the story wasnt wacky enough already, so insinuations of planned false flag terror, the Champions League and a fake broken leg needed adding to the mix.

    Well, thats cleared that up completely eh.

    Putinbots and Assadists on the Syrian Civil War Reddit cannot contain themselves - jumping for glee at the “Russophobes” that tweeted, blogged and shared the assassination story. Trumpian orgasms over “liberal” fake news. Lavrov and RT in full news management mode and the “everyone who accuses the Russians of assassinations is a fool or tool of Western/UkrainianFascist intelligence ops” story is well embedded in cyberspace before any evidence of actual Russian involvement released. Hope the Ukrainians have got really good evidence and a really good story and it comes out fast, because otherwise this will be used by the Kremlin’s propaganda op as a long term excuse, smoke screen and explanation for every attack on opponents and dissidents.

    Maybe they were about to be exposed anyway and thought they would get their version out first?

    This is certainly what some people are saying, but it does sort of ignore the fact that they were doing all that - the fake news, the news management, the allegations of Western/UkranianFascist intelligence involvement - over almost every issue as it was.

    Glad he's alive but Russia can now question Ukraine's credibility and the Skripal attack.
