Arsonists Attack Firm

Four masked attackers stormed the office of a street cleaning company in western Moscow early Tuesday, beating up the sole security guard and setting fire to the building, RIA-Novosti said.

An unidentified body was discovered in the office of the Logos-K firm after the fire was extinguished, the report said.

The guard, 67, was hospitalized after the beating, Lifenews.ru said.

The wooden building was destroyed by the fire along with seven street-cleaning trucks, a law enforcement source told RIA-Novosti. Police did not name any suspects Tuesday. 


… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
