Ukraine revealed on Wednesday that it had stage-managed the fake murder of Babchenko, a critic of the Kremlin who they said had been targeted by hitmen hired by Russian Federation, to trace a trail back to Russian Federation and expose plans for his, and other, state-sponsored assassinations.
Ukraine on Thursday defended the action of its state security services in faking the death of a Russian dissident journalist after worldwide criticism.

The unidentified Ukrainian man in turn allegedly hired an acquaintance to be the gunman, Gritsak said. "I have buried acquaintances, I have buried colleagues, I have buried friends, I am exhausted of burying them", he said, adding he wanted to create a new life for himself.
The SBU said it received information about a plot to kill 30 people in Ukraine, including Babchenko, but had thwarted it.
