Ukraine blames Russia for shooting of journalist Arkady Babchenko


Ukraine's Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has accused Russia of being behind the killing in Kiev of the Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko, APA reported citing BBC.

 

"I am confident that the Russian totalitarian machine did not forgive him his honesty and principled stance," the prime minister posted on Facebook.

 

A Kremlin critic, Babchenko was gunned down outside his apartment on Tuesday.

 

Russia has called for an investigation but said "bloody crimes" had become routine for the "Kiev regime".

 

Relations between Russia and Ukraine remain tense following Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the seizure of parts of eastern Ukraine by pro-Russian forces.

 

Babchenko, 41, was found bleeding at the entrance to his block of flats by his wife and died in an ambulance.

 

He was reportedly shot several times in the back.
