This disturbing video is just the latest in
a long line of violent attacks carried out by nationalists in Russia. It’s suspected
to be racially motivated and happened at the Udelnaya metro station in St Petersburg on
November 4th. It happened just after a nationalist rally against immigrants which was held in
the city’s field of mars park. On the same day as this attack on the metro, a group of
gay activists was also attack in St Petersburg. Russian nationalists have been responsible
for an increasing number of racist and homophobic attacks in recent years, taking on the gay
community and immigrants who largely come into the country from central Asia.
