Numerous Russian sources are confirming that Alexei Mozgovoi has been murdered today on the road linking Lugansk and Alchevsk.  The details are still very sketchy.  Apparently his car came under assault-rifle and machine-gun fire.  Two, possibly three, of his bodyguards were also killed.  The attackers apparently got away.  Last March Mozgovoi had already been the target of an assassination attempt.

Vechnaia Pamiat’ (Eternal memory) for a true hero of Russia, a man of honor, decency, courage and compassion!
