Judge and Bailiff Attacked in Southern Moscow

A judge and a court bailiff received several bruises Thursday evening when two people attacked them at a local judicial office in southern Moscow.

A 48-year old man and his 30-year old female companion initiated the fight with bailiffs at the district magistrates court near Kakhovskaya metro station, a source in law enforcement told Interfax.

A court bailiff was bruised on his right ear and left hand. A judge who tried to stop the fight received several bruises to his face and arms.

The injured officials were treated for their minor injuries and released.

Police are investigating the incident and searching for the attackers, who both successfully fled the scene.

… 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.
