Russian security frustrates assassination plot against businessman

Moscow, Mar 6 (Prensa Latina) The Russian security service (FSB) frustrated an attack organized by the Ukrainian special service against businessman Konstantin Malofeyev, a supporter of Russian traditionalist ideology.

According to the FSB, the attack against Malofeyev, who also manages the Tsargrad group of companies, would have been perpetrated by detonating an explosive attached to the floor of his car, the same method used on August 20th to assassinate journalist Daria Dugina.

Among the projects of the group headed by Malofeyev are the Tsargrad television channel and the Safe Internet League, and its tasks include: promotion of the Orthodox religion and the traditional values of the Russian people, the forwarding of education and the dissemination of Russian culture.

The businessman is subject to sanctions by the United States, the European Union, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan and New Zealand for his alleged involvement in “actions or policies that threaten peace, security, stability, sovereignty or the territorial integrity of Ukraine”.

The FSB points to Denis Kapustin, founder and one of the leaders of the “Russian Volunteer Corps” (RDK, in Russian), which fights against Russia on the side of Ukraine, as the one who planned the attempted assassination.

Kapustin is a Russian national, although he resides in Ukraine, and, according to informations, operates under the control of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).

A few days ago, the head of the RDK claimed responsibility for an armed incursion in the Russian province of Bryansk that resulted in two deaths and a wounded minor.
