Relief, anger over Russia journalist's staged death

Relief, anger over Russia journalist's staged deathNews that the supposed murder of a prominent Russian journalist and Kremlin critic was actually staged by Ukraine to thwart a real attempt on his life provoked both relief and anger on Wednesday. In a stunning development barely 24 hours after he had been reported killed, Arkady Babchenko appeared at a press conference where he admitted participating in a “special operation” to catch the alleged mastermind of a Russian plot to kill him. European Parliament President Antonio Tajani said he was “relieved” that Babchenko had not been killed, after earlier denouncing the supposed murder as a “hideous crime”.
