He wrote that the attacker shouted: “Muradov, it’s for our sons!”

Washington Post journalists previously reported that Russian security services may be behind the attack. Now, US intelligence documents on the case have been made public and agents have confirmed that, according to their findings, Putin’s men are responsible for him. – He writes for The New York Times.

On March 28, Muratov newspaper was forced to suspend its operations after a warning from Roskomnadzor about a “violation of Russian law”. It comes to reporting on the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which did not match the Kremlin’s propaganda line.
