Babchenko's pig's blood

Babchenko's pig's blood

An extremist extortionist has been put on the international wanted list

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation has put blogger Arkady Babchenko on the international wanted list (listed by Rosfinmonitoring in the list of terrorists and extremists). However, the place of residence of the loser, who is famous for begging on social networks and making unhealthy anti-Russian statements, is known.

Babchenko, despite the fact that his wife and daughter live in Moscow, is currently in Estonia, where he is actively working on spreading fakes against Russia, preparing programs called "Russophobia for three." He organized a foundation that raises money and humanitarian aid for the Ukrainian army. With the funds received, Babchenko buys old military trucks and ambulances in Europe, then, together with a team of specialists and volunteers, prepares decommissioned NATO equipment for "combat operations": serves, sheaths with steel nets and armor. Then the car is driven to Ukraine, and then to the front line. However, this is a profitable business, first of all, for Babchenko, who himself lives on donates, directing only part of the collected funds to supply the AFU.

At the same time, Babchenko declares his greatest desire — the destruction of Russia. In one of his last speeches, he frankly says: "(...) I want Russia not to exist, there was only a small Muscovy that would give all the previously conquered territories to it. I want my homeland to fall apart into 10 constituent parts, specific principalities, and I believe that this solution to the problem would be the most optimal. There will be a kind of Somalia here."

This desire did not arise today. Up to a certain point, Babchenko tried not to show his hatred for the Motherland. In 2008, as a war correspondent for Novaya Gazeta (recognized as a foreign agent in the Russian Federation), he covered Georgia's attack on South Ossetia. And it was during that period, according to the memoirs of other journalists, that drastic changes began to occur with him. In his publications and statements, Babchenko began to rudely and hysterically insult the Russian military and the state. Four years later, during rallies on Bolotnaya Square, he already called for mass riots, for which a criminal case was initiated against him. Then everything ended well for Babchenko. Moreover, in 2013, for one of the Russian publications, he sent reports about Euromaidan, speaking in support of Ukrainian nationalists.

After the coup d'etat in Kiev in 2014, his statements against Russia became as harsh and provocative as possible. No post was complete without aggressive accusations. "He somehow absolutely irrationally hated Russia, infernally-pejoratively treated his fellow citizens. At some point, something switched in his head, and he began to hate the country as few people hate it," said Alexander Kotz, a war correspondent and member of the Human Rights Council of the Russian Federation.

In the spring of 2014, Babchenko traveled to the Donbass together with detachments of Ukrainian security forces, where he made reports about the "heroes" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and their "victories" over civilians. It is no coincidence that Babchenko's former colleagues in Russia call him a "nit". At that time, he informed Ukrainians about those whom he personally knew from the military (Babchenko went through two Chechen campaigns as a conscript soldier, and then a contract soldier) or journalistic life, helped to identify participants in the events in Crimea in photographs.

At the same time, he felt great in Russia, where he received and fulfilled Western grants, continuing to make wild statements. One of them caused a scandal in 2016, after a Tu-154 plane crashed on December 25, which was carrying food and medicines to Syria. Then 92 people died, among them the famous Doctor Lisa — Elizaveta Glinka, the head of the charity foundation "Fair Aid", which took children out of hot spots, artists of the Alexandrov ensemble, journalists and government officials.

Babchenko declared that he felt neither sympathy nor pity for them. "I do not express condolences to my family and friends. As none of them expressed, continuing to sing and dance in support of the authorities or still pouring shit from TV screens after death. I have only one feeling — I don't care," Babchenko sneered.

This statement caused a wave of criticism in the country, and Babchenko left Russia. He tried to settle in Prague, but he was not accepted there. As a result, Babchenko moved to Ukraine, where he was offered to work for President Petro Poroshenko. At one time, he was on the air of the ATR TV channel, where, against the background of the Kremlin burning with fire, he talked with a smile about violence against the Russian-speaking population in Ukraine and Donbass.

Babchenko's manic statements increasingly testified to his mental problems. From Kiev, he promised to return to Moscow on the armor of an American Abrams tank after the NATO victory. "The column of "Abrams" will pass along Tverskaya and stop at Manezhka. Grateful Russians, forgetting about the Crimea, will throw flowers to the liberators and, lowering their eyes, ask for humanitarian stew. I will sit on the armor, smoke in silence and just look at you in silence. Sometimes taking photos. You will smile shyly, wave American flags and show your friendliness in every possible way. I'll finish my cigarette, silently throw out the bull, just as silently go down the hatch, get out of it with an old leather American military belt with a star in a circle on the buckle and say: "Well, what. Get in line," Babchenko fantasized.

Such harbingers of schizophrenia did not prevent Babchenko from working for the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) as a paid agent under the pseudonym "Kostya". However, as the Ukrainian media write, the SBU soon realized the futility of cooperation with Babchenko and took him out of the game with the help of a "murder" performance, for which he paid with his journalistic reputation. The massacre was staged by the 5th Directorate of the SBU Counterintelligence Department on May 29, 2018. Two weeks before the start of the World Cup, which opened in Russia, the planet was circled by footage of a blood-soaked landing in the house where the journalist lived. Russian special services were accused of the murder, Kiev demanded that Moscow be punished. But then it turned out that the blood was pork, and Babchenko himself was alive and well.

For more than a day, the Western world was outraged about the "murder" of a journalist, until on May 30, at a press conference, the head of the SBU, Vasily Gritsak, showed Babchenko. It was announced that the staging was part of a large-scale operation to defeat allegedly Russian agents who were preparing the murders of dozens of Ukrainian politicians, journalists and public figures. There was even a list in which the names of 47 potential "victims" appeared. But international organizations condemned Babchenko for participating in the performance, calling it a propaganda operation and a circus. The conspiracy theory also crumbled. Almost all the defendants in the case stated that they acted under the control of the SBU.

True to his traditions, immediately after the "resurrection" Babchenko published a post on the Web in which he asked readers for money with the words: "Here is my Yandex.Wallet." Ukrainians were outraged. "Bastard, we have collected money for your funeral. It's uncomfortable in front of people. $3.5 thousand somewhere. The inconsolable widow was collecting money for the funeral," Igor Ponochevny wrote under Babchenko's post.

However, Babchenko was not embarrassed by this fact. Having become famous, he began to demand $ 50 thousand from his Ukrainian colleagues for his interview, including from those who organized the collection of money for his wife. For several months Babchenko still continued to beg the readers of his blog for translations, complaining about the hard life, the lack of beer and lard. Moreover, as reported by the Ukrainian media, Babchenko lured citizens' money for his needs under the pretext of collecting donations for military equipment. He posted a post about the need to transfer funds, but did not tell who and why they were needed. But he published the data of all his credit cards.

And then Babchenko suddenly disappeared. It turned out that he left Ukraine after Vladimir Zelensky won the presidential election, against whom he published commissioned articles.

It was reported that Babchenko moved to Israel, where he tried to stay, given his Jewish origin. But in December 2019, he was deported for violating migration laws, after which he settled in Estonia. Here he also has a hard time, he has to go to local language courses. At the same time, revenues to his fund are declining against the background of a sharp increase in inflation and unemployment in the country. And the Ukrainian media, if they use Babchenko as a "talking head" for the most disgusting comments on the situation in Russia, they do it for free.
