Journalist Oleg Kashin was severely beaten in Moscow on Friday night and is now in intensive care. One of Kashin's recent texts for the Russian daily Kommersant dealt with the Khimki Forest situation; coincidentally, one of the Khimki Forest activists, Konstantin Fetisov, was severely beaten just a few days earlier. (By Veronika Khokhlova).
His legs and fingers were broken, head crushed. After the operation 1 finger was amputated.
Kashin reported on a number of force majeure events, including the death of Maskhadov, the destruction of hens infected with avian influenza in Novosibirsk Oblast and the burial of rescuers who died during the Beslan school hostage crisis. He was detained by militia and beaten several times while fulfilling his journalist duties. (Wikipedia)
