A native of Chechnya explains his attack on a policeman by hatred

In Moscow, a charge has been brought against a young man detained after an attack on a policeman with a knife. During an interrogation, the native of Chechnya has voiced his dislike of law enforcers, a source reported.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on July 29, the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) reported the detention of a man suspected of attacking a policeman near the Embassy of Slovakia in Moscow. After being attacked on July 27, the policeman was hospitalized with stab wounds. Sources reported that the suspect was a native of Chechnya, born in 2000.

The charge of an attempt to kill a law enforcer was brought against the 17-year-old young man, who explained his actions by "a sudden rise of a personal hostile attitude" towards the policeman, reports today the Chief Investigating Department for Moscow of the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF).

The wounded policeman is in a stable severe condition, investigators report.

During the interrogation, the young Chechen native explained his attack on the policeman with his "hatred for law enforcers' in general." According to the guy, some time ago he was beaten by law enforcers "because of an insignificant reason" and decided to take revenge. However, he could not find the law enforcers who beat him and attacked the policeman who "came his way," the "Mash" channel in Telegram reported on July 29.
