SHOCKING: Man stabs anchor in throat at major Russian radio station

The woman was taken to hospital.

(RT) – A man armed with a knife attacked and injured a female journalist after forcing his way in the Echo of Moscow radio station in Moscow, its editor-in-chief reported. The woman was taken to hospital.

Tatiana Felgengauer was stabbed in the throat by the assailant, Aleksey Venediktov reported. The attacker was subdued by the station’s security guards, he added. Felgengauer, 32, is the deputy editor-in-chief and host of one of the station’s talk shows. She first appeared on-air in 2005 as an intern correspondent and has been working for Echo of Moscow even since.

Echo of Moscow is a popular Russian news and political talk radio station. It prides itself for giving a platform to many opposition voices, as well as those of pro-government activists.

A spokesman for the Russian General Prosecutor’s office called the attack “outrageous” and said the office will closely monitor the police investigation into it.

“That was an outrageous incident,”

Aleksandr Kurennoy wrote on the office’s Telegram channel.

“My words of support to staff at the radio station.”
