Babchenko explained that he’d been part of a Ukranian operation to thwart a Russian attempt on his life. Gritsak said the attempted assassination of Babchenko had been ordered by the Russian security services.

This hero climbed a Paris apartment complex in a matter of seconds to save a 4-year old child who was holding onto the balcony he was hanging from for dear life. With not thought for his own safety or well-being, Gassama jumped into action. With the help from a resident in a neighboring apartment, Gassama was able to get to the child and pull him in before he fell. Gassama’s brave actions did not go unnoticed. He was praised by the public, and also caught the attention of French President Emmanuel Macron. The President personally thanked Gassama and said he would be naturalized and made a citizen of France. Macron also offered Gassma a role in the fire service.

In ” this is the craziest stuff you’re probably going to read today” news, a woman in Alaska allegedly hired a rape/hitman….rapeman for hire???? To do what he does best to a guy that owed her money for weed and liquor.
People Magazine (@people) reports, A 30-year old Alaska woman has been accused of ordering the rape last year of a man who allegedly owed her money for weed and booze.
The woman, now identified as Julia Haworth, remains in custody on one count of solicitation of sexual assault and one count of first-degree sexual assault.
Investigators believe Haworth told a male friend of hers she would give him a bottle of booze if he raped the other man, who she said owed her $15,000. Money the borrower alleged spent on booze and weed. The friend carried out the job. The debtor was raped in April of 2017, according to court records. The man accused of carrying out the sexual assault has been identified as 24-year old, Austin Matthias. Just like Haworth, Matthias is currently in the slammer, charged with two felony counts of first degree sexual assault.
The Anchorage Daily, reported that the victim told cops all he remembered was being punched in the face by Matthias. When he awoke later, he was sore all over. Doctors determined the man’s nose had been broken and that he’d been sexually assaulted. Prosecutor, Tom Jamgochian called the crime a “contract rape.”
