A colleague and friend of journalist Olexandr Shchetinin who was found dead in Kyiv, Eider Muzhdabaev said that he blames the Russian authorities for what happened to his friend. He said this in the air of TV channel "112 Ukraine".
"Unfortunately the last time I saw him a few months ago, and I find it hard to judge it more specifically, but from the beginning I did not believe it. But even in case it the suicide version is confirmed , although it is necessary to check all versions, and murder - in the first place. Because he really was an unwelcome person for the Russian authorities. But even if it will be confirmed that version of suicide, I lay the blame for the death of Olexandr, on course, on the Russian authorities, "- said Muzhdabaev.
He noted that it is difficult to believe that Schetinin committed suicide.
