A top Russian official summoned a journalist to a one-on-one meeting in a forest and threatened to personally arrange his killing, according to one of the country’s leading newspapers.

Without providing any explanation, aides working for Alexander Bastrykin, the head of Russia‘s investigative committee, which has powers similar to those of the FBI in America, drove Novaya Gazeta’s deputy editor, Sergei Sokolov, to a forest outside Moscow after a organised press trip and told security guards to leave them alone, it is claimed.
