Strong warning

Retired Lieutenant Colonel Arne Bord Dalhaug does not know the details of the Karpov case, but he points to previous incidents where Russian leaders were injured and killed after speaking out critical of Putin’s war.

We can divide people who have been attacked into three categories, says Dalhaug.

  • Those who defected to the West.
  • Those who are internally opposed.
  • journalists.

– If it turns out that Karpov was attacked, I think it is intended as a warning. There has been a long line of people who have expressed themselves critically, Dalhaug tells Dagbladet, who have been mysteriously wounded.

As mentioned earlier, conflicting messages must come within the family.

– It may have something to do with what they dare say. It is a strong warning to the family. He thinks that if he had a serious injury, they might have been told to be careful.
