Senator Pushkov: Abe’s bodyguards acted strangely, allowing the killer to attack at close range

MOSCOW, 9 July – RIA Novosti. The actions of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s guards at the time of the assassination were bizarre, declaration Telegraph Senator Alexey Pushkov.

The deputy pointed out that the attacker was able to approach the politician.

“It’s a very strange situation when the killer shoots easily at close range. It’s like they weren’t guarded at all, or just purely official,” Pushkov wrote.

In Nara, Japan, on Friday afternoon, during a street speech by Abe, the politician was attacked by Tetsuya Yamagami, 41, who fired twice at the former prime minister and approached from behind. After the second shot, Abe fell, receiving a wound to his chest and neck, which caused him to bleed.

Politik was taken to the Nara Medical University Hospital and died soon after. Doctors cited blood loss as the likely cause of the politician’s death.

The attacker was detained at the scene and did not resist the security guards. Japanese media reported that Yamagami served in the country’s naval self-defense forces for three years, until 2005.
