Elderly Man Killed by Recliner Thrown Out the Window – Report

An elderly Moscow man was killed after a recliner that had been thrown from the window of а 12th floor apartment hit him in the head, the Interfax news agency reported Monday, citing an unnamed source in law enforcement.

The lifeless body of the victim, who investigators said was born in 1945, was discovered near the Tyoply Stan metro station on Sunday night, the Moscow branch of the Investigative Committee said in a statement. The man's head bore an open wound, according to investigators.

Law enforcement officials have not publicly confirmed that the man was indeed killed by a recliner discarded from a window, as Interfax's source had claimed, nor have they formally specified the victim's cause of death.

Investigators are currently working to elucidate the circumstances surrounding the incident and identify the individuals responsible.

… 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.
