Having been called unpatriotic over a piece past year on Russia's intervention in Syria, Babchenko complained of an atmosphere of hate toward his work.

He was told the plot was hatched in Moscow and involved "government security forces", Babchenko told reporters.

"They told me a month ago".

Babchenko fled Russian Federation in 2017, writing on social media he no longer felt safe living there. He's known for being critical of many of Putin's policies, including the annexation of Crimea.
