From Jack Crowe’s article for nationalreview.com:
A Russian journalist well known for his scathing criticism of the Kremlin was shot dead in his Kiev apartment Tuesday night, apparently in retaliation for his activism, according to Ukrainian national police.
“The first and the most obvious is his professional activities,” Kiev police chief Andriy Krishchenko said of the victim, Arkady Babchenko, who joins the growing ranks of anti-Kremlin activists and journalists who have died under suspicious and/or violent circumstances in recent years.
Can Mr. Crowe, or anyone else, prove conclusively that Vladimir Putin had Babchenko killed? No.
But it happens over and over and over again. You’ll never convince me these are coincidences.
