This is one of the most ridiculous news stories you’ll read all year.

Arkady Babchenko, a Russian journalist who was declared dead last night, turned up to a press conference today.

The Ukranian Security Service claim they staged the death to catch those who were trying to kill him.

The 41-year-old showed up at a press conference today, alongside the head of Ukranian security service.

Speaking at today’s press conference, a special forces officer dramatically said: “I would like to issue my condolences to the Babchenko family.”

However, he added: “But I won’t do it. Instead, I will wish him another happy birthday.”

At this point, Babchenko emerged in a black hoodie, visibly emotional as a result of the entire experience.

The crowd gasp in shock, before applauding the return of the journalist. According to The Guardian, Babchenko told journalists: “I have been forced to bury my friends and colleagues many times and I know the sickening feeling.”

The journalist that was declared dead last night apologised to his wife. It’s not confirmed whether or not she has been aware of the staging.

Undoubtedly, one of the wildest news stories of the year.

“I knew I had to get out of that job because I’m sitting in front of a computer for too many hours of the day. That was never me.”
