Vladimir Putin Assassination
February 27, 2012 by staff
Vladimir Putin Assassination, A ‘terrorist’ with strong British links has been arrested in connection with a foiled ‘plot’ to assassinate Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Dramatic television footage showed half-n*ked and evidently wounded Chechen Adam Osmayev seized by special forces in the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa.
On his knees, his head bowed, he said in an alleged confession: ‘Our goal was to go to Moscow and try to kill Prime Minister Putin… Our deadline was after the Russian presidential election.’ The Russian security services have previously claimed that Osmayev was ‘a graduate of a prestigious institution of higher learning in Great Britain’, and is from a prominent Chechen family opposed to Putin.
Shown on Russian state-run TV with his hands bandaged and wounds on his face, Osmayev has been on Russia’s wanted list for a number of years.
He is believed to have lived ‘for many years’ in London, which, if true, will inflame Russian concerns that Britain is a safe haven for alleged Islamic extremist terrorist suspects from Chechnya.
The arrests of two suspects was made by the Ukrainian special services anti-terrorist unit Alfa after an accidental explosion early last month in an Odessa apaprtment which killed a third alleged terrorist, Ruslan Madayev.
The revelation comes in the final week of campaigning for Sunday’s presidential election which Putin is virtually certain to win convincingly despite recent opposition street protests against his authoritarian rule.
