An “enemy of Putin” is attacked. Authorities immediately raise accusations against Russia and the Kremlin. Public condemnation follows. There are calls to sanction Russia.
But the information is murky. The details don’t make sense. Critical questions follow. After the while the “dead” come back from death.

The above was the script followed in the Skripal affair. The “deadly nerve agent – of a kind developed by Russia-” did not kill at all. Now a similar case happened.

Arkady Babchenko: Ukraine blames Russia for journalist murder

BBC: Ukraine’s Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has accused Russia of being behind the killing in Kiev of the Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko.

‘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.

…After his murder was announced and everyone had had time to “blame Russia,” contradicting tales of how the murder happened emerged.

Babchenko was killed by shots in the back or front, the public was told. He was killed while either leaving the apartment or while coming back, depending on which sources the media spoke to. He died in place or in the emergency vehicle. Not even the number of shots that had hit him was consistently reported. The police did not get the story straight.

Then news broke in Kiev that the police had been in Babchenko apartment block hours before he was killed. They had manipulated the CCTV. Something was deeply wrong here.

Now it turns out that Babchenko is alive and well. No one shot at him. Today he appeared in a press conference (video).

The internal Ukrainian security service SBU said it had created a stunt together with Babchenko. It says that this was done to catch someone who had threatened him…

This will not go down well for Babchenko or the Ukraine. The Ukrainian Prime Minister officially accused Russia of killing the man. But it turns out the the Ukrainian state faked the murder. Babchenko comes back from the dead, proving that the accusations against Russia were false. Just as one false claim is undone the Ukrainian security service says that Russia ordered a failed assassination? Why would anyone now believe a word of what they say?

Russia should be happy. Both affairs, the Skripal and the Babchenko stunt, have been proven to be factless propaganda against Russia.

More people will wake up to such obvious manipulation. They will ask questions. The usual accusers will have to become more cautious in raising their propaganda claims. Their propaganda “killings” will – in the end – kill their propaganda.

Be seeing you
