It is too early to say who's behind the high-profile murder of Russian reporter Arkadiy Babchenko; however, Russia has been involved in the similar assassinations in the past. Ukraine's foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin said this at the UN Security Council session on late Thursday.

'Understanding similar cases makes us think that Russia has been using other kinds of tactics to destabilize Ukraine - terrorist acts, acts of sabotage and political murders', Klimkin said.

The minister added that Babchenko kept on struggling for democratic Russia, staying in Ukraine, which is why 'Moscow has always considered him its enemy'.

As is known, Russian reporter Arkadiy Babchenko was shot dead in Kyiv. Ayder Muzhdabayev, the deputy CEO of ATR TV channel, posted this on Facebook. 'They shot Arkadiy in his back, at his own place', he wrote.

The critically wounded man passed away in the ambulance. 

According to the police, the message came in from Babchenko's wife who found him lying on the floor with the gunshot wound to his back.

The operatives and forensics arrived on the crime scene; the investigation is underway.
