Special presidential representative for the fight against international terrorism and organized crime Anatoly Safonov said that they no evidence that would suggest that bin Laden has been killed.
International media has reportedly speculated on whether or not bin Laden was destroyed during the bombing campaigns in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Safonov emphasized that the American and Russian secret services have the same approach to capturing bin Laden be it legal, or technical.
Finding bin Laden, said Safonov, “is just a matter of time.”
