Huge protests in Russia after Muslim suspects released.


A group of Muslim Chechens attacked some Russians at a bus stop in Moscow. They shot and killed one, another victim was seriously injured. Police arrested six suspects, but soon released all but the alleged gunman. The media downplayed the events, portraying it as a mutual “brawl” rather than an unprovoked attack motivated by ethnic hatred. Russian nationalists have reacted with mass demonstrations that turned into battles with police and minor rioting.

Infuriated by the media’s downplaying of the attack, tens of thousands of Russians demonstrated in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The chanting in the video is “Moscow is for Russians.”
