If you enjoy a good fictional spy-mystery-whodunit- novel, then you’re going to love this story. Only thing is that this is not fiction, this story actually happened…..

 

 

 

NBC News (@nbcnews) reports, a Russian journalist who was widely reported to have been assassinated in the Ukraine Capital turned up at a news conference alive and well on Wednesday. The head of Ukraine’s security services, Vasyl Gritask, told reporters in Kiev that the agency had faked Arkady Babchenko’s death to catch those who were trying to kill him.

 

 

 

Gritsak also announced that authorities had solved Babchenko’s slaying. He then startled everyone there by inviting the 41-year old reporter into the room.

To the applause and gasps of the press who thought he’d been murdered, Babchenko took the floor and apologized to the friends and family who mourned for him and were unaware of the plan. “I’m still alive” he said. 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.
