It looks, though, like pro Putin assassins have shot dead a Russian journalist in Kiev yesterday.
Several bullets to the back of the head.
They don't know who shot the journalist. We can speculate it was "Putin assassins." I can speculate too. Maybe he was shot and it was made to look like a Kremlin hit. Think of the timing and the bad optics, especially when the Kremlin knows the west is watching and a Putin critic is mysteriously shot? It's terrible, of course, but I think no matter who did it the UK media/government will cynically use this poor guy's murder to add yet another reason why we all need to hate Russia.
