Russian Journalist Dies in Hospital After Brutal Beating

TASS / INTERPRESS

Nikolay Andruschenko, a journalist and co-founder at the Novy Peterburg newspaper, died in a local hospital, the Rosbalt news agency reported on Wednesday.

Andruschenko, who was 73 years old, never regained consciousness after suffering a brutal attack on his way to a meeting last month. He suffered major blunt trauma to his head, was hospitalized, and put into a medically-induced coma from which he never recovered.

Andruschenko was renowned for his brave investigative reporting on local crime, corruption, and police brutality. Novy Peterburg, a weekly publication that he co-founded, recently ran a series of articles about city officials' mafia connections.

… 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.
