Yet Another Race Murder In Moscow

Radio Free Europe reports that yet another dark-skinned foreigner has fallen victim to a race assault in Russia. The killing occurred May 25th but was hushed up for nearly a week by the authorities.

May 30, 2006 -- A 19-year-old ethnic Armenian has been stabbed to death by a group of young men on a suburban train near Moscow. Artur Sardaryan was killed on May 25, but his death was only announced today. A spokeswoman for the Moscow region prosecutor's office says the group approached Sardaryan as he sat on a regional commuter train and stabbed him for no apparent reason. A lawyer representing the family, Simon Tsaturyan, quotes eyewitnesses as saying the attackers shouted "Glory to Russia!" (the grafitti pictured above reads: "Death to Niggers"). Prosecutors have launched a hate-crime investigation. The killing is the latest in a series of attacks on foreigners and immigrants from the Caucasus and Central Asia in Moscow and throughout Russia.

This brings the total number of persons killed in Russia so far this year because they were the wrong skin color to an appalling 30.
