    He is killed in cafe bombing. The amount of planning, and timing it must take to accomplish this. If they can pinpoint where he will be at what time, arent there easier ways to kill him without risking so much collateral damage? A bomb is quite a bit much for just a single person. Unless you know exactly where he is seated, the bomb must be pretty powerful to ensure coverage of whole dining area.

    Quote from article:
    Denis Pushilin, the speaker of the separatists' parliament, blamed Ukraine's forces for the explosion, calling it "the latest aggression from the Ukrainian side," according to DAN. A statement from the rebel command said "it was conducted by special operations forces of Ukraine under control of U.S. special services."

    "Instead of fulfilling the Minsk accords and finding ways to resolve the internal conflict, the Kiev war party is implementing a terrorist scenario," Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said of Zakharchenko's death. "Having failed to fulfill the promise of peace, apparently they decided to turn to a bloodbath."

    Igor Guskov, chief of staff of the Ukrainian Security Service, rejected allegations of any involvement, saying: "We have reason to believe that the death of Zakharchenko may be the result of an internal criminal conflict among the rebels ... but we do not exclude that it was an attempt by Russian special services to remove this odious figure."

    So if was USA, which branch agency be handling this assigment? Do CIA case officers actually do this type of work? How will Russia retaliate? Spy vs Spy is always awesome.

    Coulda been anyone really. If Ukrainian forces intensify shelling or try to take advantage of this by instigating an upswing in attacks it would have to point to them.

    If the conflict stays frozen, it's probably someone else

    Bombs are used to tell everyone you dont give a fuck about CD; and that you are no longer a problem.

    Well done. If it's due to infighting, even better.

    Bombs are what you would call "sending a message"

    Just like being suicided from a door knob.

    That was Theresa "No love" May sending a message.
    Goes "dancing" with children in Africa while at the same time sending a message to Putin.
