Arkady Babchenko, a fiercely anti-Kremlin journalist who had been reported shot and killed in Kiev, showed up alive Wednesday at a news conference to explain that police faked his death to catch the man who ordered a hit on him.
Authorities announced on Tuesday that Babchenko's wife discovered him with gunshot wounds at their apartment and he died en route to a Kiev hospital.
The journalist apologized to his wife, who had reportedly called the police when she found him bleeding.
Boris Johnson had taken to Twitter in the early hours of this morning to tweet about Mr Babchenko, he said: "Appalled to see another vocal Russian journalist, Arkady Babchenko, murdered". "I could offer my condolences to to Arkady Babchenko's family, but I will not", Gritsak said before introducing Babchenko alive, according to The Telegraph. I am sorry, but there were no options here.
Maria Zakharova, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, welcomed the news that the journalist is in fact alive but said "it's obvious that a propaganda effect was part of this story".
Russian officials also criticized Ukraine for failing to provide adequate protection to journalists.
Sheremet, a Belarusian-born Russian citizen who made Kyiv his permanent home, was well known as a hard-hitting reporter and commentator who had worked at prominent media outlets in Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine during his decades-long career.
He said Ukrainian security agents told him a month ago that assassins had been paid $40,000 to kill him.
"I am convinced that the Russian totalitarian machine could not forgive his honesty and principled position", Ukraine's Prime Minister Volodymyr Hroysman posted on Facebook Tuesday. Babchenko was 19 when he was sent to fight in Russia's first Chechen campaign in the 1990s as a conscript.
Mark Galeotti, a veteran commentator on Russian Federation said the Ukrainian sting operation would play into Moscow's hands.
In a statement following Babchenko's big reveal Wednesday, the Committee to Protect Journalists urged authorities to explain the reasoning behind the staged death in greater detail.
Babchenko was killed less than a month after Putin was inaugurated for his 4th Kremlin term and as Russian Federation gears up to host the World Cup later this month.
The Russian internet news site Kommersant, citing a source close to the Ukrainian prosecution, reported that the assassination was "almost certainly a provocation by outside parties".
In 2016, investigative journalist Pavel Sheremet was killed when a bomb exploded his auto.
Arkadiy Babchenko is the Russian journalist, war-time correspondent and the writer.
