St. Petersburg, Russia -- this Sunday two anti-fascist rock musicians were attacked in downtown at 6:30 pm; one was killed, another is in critical condition. Timur Kacharav and Maxim Zgibay were going into a book store, when 10 young skinheads attacked them with fists and knives. Though the crime happened in downtown, by the trendy Nevsky Prospect, and was witnessed by many people, all the neo-Nazis managed to escape without getting caught.
The musicians were wrapping up the anti-fascist concert, which was followed by accepting food donations for homeless people.
