Anti-Fascist Protester Murdered in Moscow

Student With Anti-Fascist Leaflets Murdered

The Moscow Times

A 19-year-old student described by friends as an anti-fascist activist was attacked by a group of young men in southern Moscow and killed after being stabbed once in the chest, police said Tuesday.

Six to eight young men approached Alexander Ryukhin, a third-year student at the Moscow Electronics and Mathematics Institute, near the Domodedovskaya metro station Sunday evening as he and a friend headed for a punk rock concert, said Sova, a hate crimes watchdog.
One of the attackers stabbed Ryukhin in the chest with a knife, Sova said, citing eyewitnesses' accounts to investigators.

Ryukhin died almost instantly, well before an ambulance arrived. Anti-fascist leaflets were found in his pockets.

The attackers fled, leaving the knife in Ryukhin's chest and no fingerprints on the handle.
