Despite Russian denials, German politicians and media are blaming Moscow for the Berlin assassination of a Georgian who once fought Russian forces in Chechnya, an affair that could spark a diplomatic crisis. One security source, in comments to German weekly Der Spiegel, described the killing as a second Skripal affair — referring to the attempt on the life of a former Russian agent in England last year. On Friday, August 23, German police arrested a 49-year-old suspect from Russia’s Chechnya republic, shortly after Zelimkhan Khangoshvili, 40, had been shot dead.
