An unidentified man beat up an Arab journalist in St. Petersburg

A 41-year-old Palestinian journalist for Al Jazeera Rania Dridi was attacked by an unidentified man in the Russian city of St. Petersburg during live television. He demanded that she speak Russian. As a result, the woman was diagnosed with a concussion and a closed head injury.

This was reported by Russian media. Dridi covered the Russian-Ukrainian war on Arab television. The incident occurred back on the night of August 25 near the building of the Wagner PMC Center on Zolnaya Street, where a memorial to Yevgeny Prigozhin and other company executives who died in the plane crash has been installed (to see the video, scroll to the end of the news).

Dridi described the attacker as a Russian man in his early 30s dressed in jeans and a black jacket. She reported the attacker to police and was admitted to the hospital. The attacker could face up to two years in prison for battery, according to the SHOT Telegram channel. He is being sought by law enforcers.

Novaya Gazeta journalist Yelena Milashina and lawyer Alexander Nemov were attacked in Chechnya on July 4. They attended the announcement of the verdict of the wife of former Chechen Supreme Court judge Zarema Musaeva, who had been kidnapped by Chechen security forces from Nizhny Novgorod. The people were brutally beaten, threatened with death and had their equipment taken away. The journalist's fingers were broken and bruises were diagnosed all over her body, while the lawyer has had difficulty moving and speaking since the attack, Russian media and human rights publishers say.

Later, the Russian media showed what Novaya Gazeta journalist Elena Milashina looked like after being beaten in Chechnya. The footage shows severe bruises and marks from the beating on her back. She has a plaster cast on her hands after breaking her fingers and no hair on her head.

As reported by OBOZREVATEL, a Ukrainian mediawoman Alina Polikovska died during a landslide in Georgia. She was vacationing in the village of Shovi with her family. The Ukrainian came to the resort with her husband and three children.
