After that, threats began to come to his address, and later, in the street, he was forced to apologize to Muslims and Christians. Meanwhile, he was struck and the incident was shot on the video, the "Ekho Moskvy" reports.

According to Alexei Knyazev, the incident involved five Caucasian natives, the "Govorit Moskva" Radio Station reports.

The Union of Chechen Youth will hold a conversation with the Caucasians who attacked the student, said Rustam Tapaev, the chairman of the Union. "This is ordinary act of hooliganism ... If a person has insulted someone, there are other options to bring him to justice," emphasized Rustam Tapaev as quoted by the RIA "Novosti".
