Babchenko, one of Russia's best-known war correspondents, left his country in February 2017, saying he was receiving threats and he was concerned he might be jailed.
Babchenko had openly criticized numerous Kremlin policies and global campaigns.
The 41-year-old's death stunned colleagues and added to tension between Moscow and Kyiv, whose ties have been badly damaged by Russia's seizure of Crimea and backing for separatist militants in a devastating war in eastern Ukraine.
Writing in an article in the United Kingdom newspaper, the Guardian, explaining his decision to flee Russia, Babchenko said the campaign "was so personal, so scary, that I was forced to flee".
Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, in comments posted to his Facebook page, also implied involvement by Putin's government in Babchenko's death.
Russia had demanded on Tuesday that Ukraine conduct a full investigation into his death, though many suspected that Russians were behind it.
Before ushering Babchenko into the room, Gritsak said the Ukrainian allegedly recruited by Russian agents to kill the reporter had hired an acquaintance to be the gunman.
