"I don't understand such 'special operations'. These things are incomprehensible to me," the minister said.

"Of course, the only good news in all that story is that he is alive," he added.

Babchenko appeared alive at the Ukrainian Security Service's news conference on Wednesday, a day after it was reported that he had died from several gunshots to the back in the stairwell of his apartment building in Kiev.

Vasyl Hrytsak, the head of the Security Service, told reporters that Babchenko' death had been faked as part of a "special operation" to foil an attempt on his life.
