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.
