Russian journalist dies after attack in St. Petersburg

Russian journalist dies after attack in St. Petersburg

Andrushchenko, a former St. Petersburg city council member, was reportedly placed in a medical coma after suffering major blunt trauma to his head, but never recovered.

A prominent Russian journalist has died of his injuries six weeks after being attacked in St. Petersburg.

Novy Peterburg founder Nikolai Andrushchenko died in a St. Petersburg hospital.

Mourinho, though, praised the performance of 19-year-old forward Rashford and his team-mates for a dominant Old Trafford showing. Herrera looked to have handled the ball in the build-up to that goal but he wasn't penalized.

Usov said the attack was motivated by the paper's coverage of protests, "the authorities' demonstrative struggle against corruption", as well as its publication of the memoirs of Dmitry Zapolsky, a journalist who investigated local politicians' criminal activities in the 1990s.

Andrushchenko's death marks the seventh fatal attack against a journalist during Putin's second presidency, and the second in 2017.

In November that year he was beaten by unidentified attackers, CPJ said.

The police are unlikely to put much effort into the investigation, since Andruschenko wrote a lot about the arbitrariness of the police, and he was not liked for his intransigence.

At the time Mr Andrushchenko's colleagues said they thought his detention was due to Novy Peterburg's critical coverage of local authorities ahead of parliamentary elections.

Ageyeva told CPJ that St. Petersburg police launched an investigation after the March 9 attack, but that Andrushchenko's colleagues at Novy Peterburg had not been questioned in connection with the probe, and that the newspaper had not been notified of any progress in the investigation. A week later a publishing house refused to print the paper, and another refused to print an edition containing an article by opposition leader Garry Kasparov.
