In August, a Georgian exile was shot while at a park in Berlin. Numerous media sources have now reported that Russia’s Federal Security Service was involved in the murder. The suspected assassin, Vadim Krasikov, was a previous Chechen rebel commander and had been in contact with former members associated with the FSB spetsnaz (special) forces months before the murder took place. Reports also claim that Krasikov stayed in FSB buildings and entered Germany under a false passport name, Vadim Sokolov. He is also a suspect in the 2013 killing of a Russian businessman that took place in Moscow. The prosecution has announced that there is clear evidence showing the involvement of the FSB in the murder.
