Khimki Suspects Held

A Khimki court has authorized the arrest of two suspects in the November beating of forest defender Konstantin Fetisov, who spent months in a coma and remains hospitalized, Interfax reported.

Yevgeny Morozov, 24, who has a criminal record, and Konstantin Kriventsov, 25, are suspected of beating Fetisov with baseball bats, the report said. The two are thought to have been hired by Khimki official Andrei Chernyshyov, who himself was reportedly hired by an unidentified man to carry out the attack. Chernyshyov was detained in December.
