Man Fatally Stabbed in Broad Daylight on Moscow's Main Street

A man who had recently left a psychiatric hospital fatally stabbed a 22-year-old male acquaintance in the neck outside a beauty salon in broad daylight in central Moscow on Monday, Russian media reported.

The perpetrator had reportedly threatened the victim on several occasions at the Sun and City salon where the victim worked on Moscow's main street, Tverskaya Ulitsa, and the victim had even bought pepper spray to protect himself, the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper reported.

Around noon Monday, the attacker reportedly brandished a knife and stabbed the victim in front of horrified onlookers. The victim died of blood loss at the scene, the Interfax news agency reported.

The killer was detained by nearby security guards and is currently in police custody, the Investigative Committee said in an online statement.

… 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.
