Russia's far right blamed for murder of anti-fascist

One of Russia’s leading anti-Nazi campaigners has been assassinated in his home, apparently in revenge after he helped to convict Russian extremists. Nikolai Girenko, 64, was shot on Saturday morning in St Petersburg. His attacker, who authorities believe was almost certainly a professional contract killer, rang the doorbell and asked to speak to him. Mr Girenko did not open the door but did identify himself. The killer fired at least one round from a sawn-off shotgun through the steel door, striking the academic in the chest. The anti-fascism expert, trained as an anthropologist, worked for the Public Campaign Against Xenophobia, Racism, Ethnic Discrimination and Anti-Semitism, and collaborated closely with various human rights groups.Full Story
