Russian Radio Presenter Tatyana Felgengauer Stabbed in the Neck After Man Breaks Into Newsroom

One of Russia’s top radio presenters has had surgery after being stabbed in the neck by a man who broke into her newsroom at broadcaster Ekho Moskvy.

Tatyana Felgengauer is in a medically-induced coma in a Moscow hospital but her life is not said to be in danger.

A male suspect is under arrest. His motive is not clear, though police say it appears to be a personal grudge.

Ekho Moskvy, an independent station, often broadcasts views critical of the Kremlin.

The knifeman reportedly sprayed a gas into the face of a security guard as he broke in.

According to Ekho Moskvy, the alleged attacker’s name is Boris Grits. It describes the attacker as an Israeli, citing “informed sources”.

Russian police described him as a 48-year-old foreigner. “Initial findings show that personal dislike was the motivation,” police told Interfax news agency.
