Finally, a Chechen assassin hired by the Russians reportedly posed as a French journalist in Ukraine where he attempted to assassinate high profile Ukrainians who fought on the eastern front.

The man was tall and dapper. He wore a dark suit and spoke with a French accent. When he met politicians in Kiev, he introduced himself as Alex Werner, a reporter with the French newspaper Le Monde.
