Critic of Kremlin's policy in the Caucasus wounded at "Echo Moskvy"

Tatiana Felgengauer, a presenter of the "Echo Moskvy" Radio, who has been hospitalized with a wound in the neck, has become another victim of an attack on journalists in Russia. Felgengauer has been often broadcasting on sensitive topics related to Northern Caucasus. In particular, she discussed the links of Nemtsov's murder with Chechnya and the Kremlin's patronage of Ramzan Kadyrov.

Today, an unidentified man broke into the editorial office of the "Echo Moskvy" Radio and stabbed Tatiana Felgengauer in her throat. The journalist was hospitalized; now, there is no threat to her life.

The attacker was detained by securities and handed over to the police, the "Echo Moskvy" has reported on its website.

The police are interrogating the attacker, said a law enforcement source without specifying the attacker's name. "They interrogate him and establish the reason for the attack," the RIA "Novosti" quoted the source as saying.

The attacker is a citizen of Israel, the source has added. According to his version, the man, who is a native of Georgia, permanently lives in Israel and has citizenship of this country, the RIA "Novosti" has reported.
