Listen to this article Ukraine’s Intelligence Chief Confirms Accountability For Eliminating Russian Propagandists
Major General Kyrylo Budanov’s Admission
According to The Times, Major General Kyrylo Budanov, the head of Ukraine’s military intelligence, has openly acknowledged that Kyiv is responsible for the assassinations of prominent Russian propagandists. Budanov confidently stated that they have successfully targeted several individuals, some of whom have received extensive media coverage.
Since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion last year, a series of noteworthy incidents involving pro-Kremlin figures being killed or injured on Russian soil have occurred. While Budanov did not disclose the specific identities of the targets, the following incidents stand out
Nizhny Novgorod Region Explosion
Earlier this month, an explosion in the Nizhny Novgorod region caused injuries to Zakhar Prilepin, a renowned pro-Kremlin writer and prominent Russian novelist.
Cafe Explosion in Saint Petersburg
In April, an explosion at a cafe in Saint Petersburg resulted in the death of Vladlen Tatarsky, a well-known pro-Kremlin military blogger, and caused injuries to 25 others.
Car Bombing in Moscow Suburbs
In August of the previous year, Daria Dugina, the daughter of Putin’s ideologue Aleksandr Dugin, tragically lost her life in a car bombing in the Moscow suburbs.
Budanov’s Stance on Punishment
In a separate interview, Budanov emphasized that individuals who commit such despicable actions will inevitably face punishment, regardless of their location. He strongly believes that eliminating them is a justifiable consequence for their actions, expressing this as his personal opinion, which he intends to uphold.
Ukraine’s Distancing and Podolyak’s Statement
It is important to note that Ukraine has previously distanced itself from these attacks. Following Tatarsky’s death, Mykhaylo Podolyak, a presidential aide, suggested that the attack was an act of domestic terrorism carried out by Russians opposed to Ukraine’s full-scale invasion. He characterized it as an inevitable outcome, likening it to the eruption of a festering sore.
Additionally, Podolyak made the intriguing remark, “It begins in RF… Spiders are eating each other in a jar.”
