MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. The reported murder of the Novaya Kakhovka district’s military-civilian administration deputy chief, Vitaly Gura, was a staged operation by Russia’s Federal Security Service, the FSB. The man is alive and on Monday he appeared on Russia’s Channel One.
"The Ukrainian media has been saying that I’m already dead, that I was killed. In early August, I was told that preparations for an attempt on my life were on. I was given a recording testifying that some people were plotting to kill me," Gura said on.
