This was suggested by Russian journalist Yulia Latynina on air of Echo of Moscow radio station, Censor.NET reports.
"This murder followed the JIT's statement on the MH17 crash. It is clear that Motorola did not take the aircraft down - it was done by Russian military who operated the Buk. Motorola was captured on camera and one can deduce from the conversation that he knew those who came and pulled the trigger. I would note that following an investigation by Hajo Seppelt, a German journalist, people involved in the doping scandal started to die. So if others implicated in the Boeing case start dying suddenly, then, maybe, some of them will escape as Rodchenkov [former director of Russia's Anti-Doping Center - ed.] did," she noted.
Latynina says there may be other reasons for the murder of the infamous terrorist, such as illegal business.
"Motorola once was a car wash worker, and in Donetsk he got everything: an apartment, which, by the way, had been confiscated by the "liberators" from the former owners, a team, a car, a wife, glory, respect and a business peculiar to Donetsk. As I have already mentioned, one of the most popular kinds of business was selling property from abandoned houses, including cars. What a splendid opportunity! You've come to liberate people, and they have fled. Well, you've got to sell their property - they are traitors, after all," Latynina added.
"Then, in fact, it turns out that the business is risky in three aspects. First, it's not a business but pure and simple banditry. So it's tied to the same risks any Russian bandit from the early 90s was faced with - the risks of internal squabbles," she said.
In addition, according to Latynina, Motorola could be "cleaned" by Russia's secret services: "Apart from the fact that these people are having the infighting, a planned elimination campaign may have been launched by the Russian secret services who understand they won't get anywhere with these nice heroes."
