Mr Babchenko's wife had earlier said he'd been shot in the back as he left their apartment in the city.

In the tropics, the story has been Subtropical Storm Alberto , which makes landfall later today across the Panhandle of Florida. Storm Alberto has continued roiling toward parts of coastal Mexico and Cuba with rip currents and risky surf on Saturday.

Ilya Ponomarev, a former Russian lawmaker who also moved to Ukraine, said Wednesday that Babchenko continued being threatened after he settled last fall in Kyiv, where he worked as a host for the Crimean Tatar TV station. After emergency services arrived, Babchenko was taken to the hospital but died en route. In one, he said he felt no regret about the deaths of Russian army choir members and others from a December 2016 plane crash as they were heading to perform before Russian troops in Syria. He left Russian Federation in February 2017, saying he was receiving threats and concerned he might be jailed.

Babchenko fled Russian Federation a year ago, fearing for his life, and settled in Ukraine. Babchenko was a well-known war correspondent and openly supportive of Ukraine.

Babchenko also spoke about his time fighting in Chechnya, describing the philosophy of hate that he and his fellow soldiers were exposed to-that all Chechen men age 10-60 were enemies that Russian soldiers should "Kill, kill, kill".

At the event, he also shared his fears prior to leaving Russian Federation, comments that would prove to be eerily prescient given Tuesday's shooting outside his home: "For years I thought I'd be arrested", Babchenko said then.

If this game was any indication, it's going to be a high-event series with plenty of offense and highlight-worthy action. The Vegas Golden Knights beat Washington Capitals 6-4 in a dramatic opening game of the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final.

Having been called unpatriotic over a piece a year ago on Russia's intervention in Syria, Babchenko complained of an atmosphere of hate toward his work. Babchenko inexplicably linked back to this episode in a tweet on Monday, with the comment, "When the president's representative openly posts an offer to have you killed".
