Russian Journalist Tatyana Felgenhauer Thanks Her Supporters After Stabbing
‘FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE’
Tatyana Felgenhauer, the Russian journalist who was stabbed in the throat last week at work in Moscow, issued a statement thanking her supporters from the hospital after awaking from a coma. Felgenhauer is a top host and deputy editor-in-chief at Russia’s only independent news radio station, Echo of Moscow. Investigators have reportedly arrested the man suspected of the attack, a 48-year-old Russian Israeli. “You have to fight for your life,” said Felgenhauer, in her statement. The Daily Beast’s Anna Nemtsova reported last week that Felgenhauer was a key figure in covering Russia’s anti-Putin protests.
