FSB claims to have prevented the murder of Margarita Simonyan

Jul 16, 2023

Kremlin propaganda outlet RIA Novosti reported that the FSB, together with the Russian Interior Ministry, had allegedly prevented the murder of top TV hitwoman Margarita Simonyan, a former socialite, presidential candidate, and now blogger who justifies fascist Russia,


The Russians accuse Ukraine of preparing the assassination attempts. Allegedly, the SBU ordered these murders with a payment of one and a half million rubles for each to some "neo-Nazis from the Paragraph-88 group." That is, to Russian neo-Nazis...

It refers to the detention of "loser killers" with weapons - Kalashnikovs, knives, brass knuckles, batons. Plus, it is stated that they were handcuffed. They were captured in the Moscow and Ryazan regions.

It's a rather strange story, similar to another empty staged throw-in. Firstly, the choice of perpetrators - some mythical neo-Nazis with a deliberately fascist name of the organization (meaning the number 88). Secondly, the choice of Sobchak as a victim. Although she supports the Russian government and the military, she works more for the intelligentsia and is not an interesting target for Ukraine.
