According to the Russian Federal Security Service FSB, an assassination attempt on the top man of the media group Zargrad was foiled. Businessman Konstantin Malofeev has been on the EU sanctions lists since 2014.
The Russian secret service FSB reported on Monday that it had prevented an assassination attempt on Konstantin Malofeev, the founder of the Internet Telekanal Zargrad. The assassination attempt was planned by Denis Kapustin, a Russian national who lives in Ukraine and works for that country’s security service, according to the FSB. Kapustin is the founder and one of the leaders of the “Russian Volunteer Corps”, whose members take part in the fighting on the Ukrainian side. The news agency TASS reported, citing the FSB, that Malofeyev’s murder was to have been carried out by a bomb planted under his car.
The authority distributed a video sequence that allegedly shows the installation of an explosive device under his car.
Malofeyev commented on the reports and said that everything was fine with him. The FSB said that the Ukrainian security services acted in a similar way when preparing to murder Darya Dugina. The car of the journalist, political scientist and daughter of the philosopher Alexander Dugin exploded on August 20, 2022. Some intelligence services, including Zargradannounced at the time that members of the “Russian Volunteer Corps” had taken responsibility for this murder.
TASS reports with reference to the FSB that the members of the “Russian Volunteer Corps” are also behind the recent terrorist attacks in the Russian region of Bryansk. On March 2, 2023, the attackers entered the Russian border villages of Lubechane and Suschany and killed two people. Two other people were injured. In these attacks, too, Kapustin assumed the role of organizer and one of those directly involved.
In August 2022, the FSB wants to have prevented the detonation of an oil pipeline in the Volgograd region. According to the authorities, Kapustin also organized this terrorist attack. At that time the immediateThe perpetrators were two Russian nationals, supporters of the right-wing extremist groups “White Rex”, “Restruct” and “Karpatskaya Setsch” organized by Kapustin. They put up armed resistance and were “neutralized” in the process TASS with reference to the FSB.
In connection with the attempted assassination of Malofeyev, the philosopher Alexander Dugin wrote in his Telegram channel: “The logic of the NATO terrorists and their immediate servants, the Nazis of Kiev, is understandable. It consists in the destruction of the main ideologues of the Russian Renaissance.”
After the 2014 coup in Ukraine, Malofeev supported the people’s militias and the civilian population of the republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, as well as Ukrainian refugees in Russia.
A criminal case was instituted against Kapustin on charges of terrorist attack, participation in the activities of a terrorist organization and illegal trafficking in explosive devices.
