According to him, the Russian authorities were planning attacks and killing of Russian opposition may 26 — the day of the finals of the UEFA Champions League in Kiev. As the journalist wrote, also in Lithuania planned the murder a political refugee from Russia who was granted asylum in Britain.
Babchenko claims that the customer of murder of Russian opposition is Prigogine.
According to the journalist, Prigogine ordered his murder after he published posts criticizing the businessman in Facebook.
“Here is an important background. Obviously, Eugene Prigozhin does not like, when it start to write in the Newspapers. Yulia Latynina became interested in his persona, and got four attacks — two times it poured feces, tracked down on the way to work, once I set the car on fire, and when the warnings did not work, tried to kill, to spray the house with poison… why am I here? It’s very simple. Shortly before ordering me about Prigogine I started to write,” wrote Babchenko.

We will remind, the information that Babchenko was gunned down in his home in Kiev, appeared on the evening of may 29. The next day, the SBU and Prosecutor General’s office showed him alive, and said that it was a special operation, which helped to identify the probable organizer of the murder of journalist and to the list of people who are also at risk.
At the same time the security forces said they detained a possible organizer, Executive Director of the Ukrainian-German JV “Schmeisser” Boris Hermann. He argues that indeed “ordered” the murder Babchenko, a former member of the fighting in the Donbass Alexey Tsimbalyuk, but it was only an imitation of the order, and in fact he acted under the supervision of another person from one of the Ukrainian security services.

At trial, Herman called the probable customer from Russia – Vyacheslav Pivovarnik, who was born and raised in Ukraine, but some time ago went to Russia.
