Putin Assassination: Vladimir Putin Assassination Attempt

February 27, 2012 by staff 

Putin Assassination: Vladimir Putin Assassination Attempt, State television in Russia said that Russian and Ukrainian security services had seized two conspirators in Odessa, southern Ukraine, in January, after an explosion in an apartment.

Adam Osmayev, 31, the Chechen ringleader, reportedly confessed to planning the assassination of the Russian prime minister on the orders of Doku Umarov, the emir of the Islamist insurgency against Moscow’s rule in the North Caucasus region.

The timing of the revelation by Kremlin-controlled media has however been seen as an electoral ploy by Mr Putin’s allies to boost his image as a guarantor of stability battling shadowy foreign forces in the final week before the election, which he is expected to win.

The murder plot was allegedly exposed after the blast in Odessa on January 4, which was initially thought to be a domestic gas explosion. However, it transpired to be an accident during the preparation of an explosive device.
