‘Cop Stabber’ Detained

A man has been detained on suspicion of stabbing to death two off-duty policemen during an argument over a road accident involving a horse-drawn cart in the Voronezh region, Interfax reported Monday.

The police car flipped over trying to avoid crashing into the cart, which had eight passengers, the report said, citing a statement from the Investigative Committee.

Two policemen were killed and a third was injured in an ensuing tussle by the suspected assailant, who was only identified as a 28-year-old resident of the local Gribanovsky village. He faces up to life in prison over the incident.

Some reports said the police officers stopped the cart for a document check when investigating a theft, but the committee did not confirm it.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
