Kurdish journalist beaten up in Moscow
Khoshavi Mohammed was hospitalized.
In the area of the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia campus in Moscow, unknown persons attacked the correspondent of the Kurdistan 24 TV channel Khoshavi Mohammed. The journalist was hospitalized. This was reported to RIA Novosti citing the representative of the Democratic Party of Kurdistan in Russia Khoshavi Babakr.

According to him, the attack occurred a few days ago.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
