Journalist's Investigation Proved No Murder in Irkutsk

On November 27, 2008, one of the Irkutsk news-papers published the results of an investigation which showed that the high profile murder of 16 year-old Olga Rukosyla didn't take place. Moreover, there was no such a girl with such a name.

The disclaimer was made by an Irkutsk newspaper :SM Nomer Odin; in cooperation with the Irkutsk and Moscow antifascists.

The sources of the disinformation turned out to be a young man and a girl from Irkutsk who had introduced themselves as friends of the victim (the young man had even showed an ID card of a police officer and said that he had been investigating the murder).

The motives of the falsifiers are not known.

The details of the journalist investigation you can find here (in Russian).
