Nobel-Winning Newspaper Editor Attacked on Russian Train

From a Washington Post story by Jeanne Whalen headlined “Nobel-winning newspaper editor attacked on Russian train”:

Prominent Russian newspaper editor Dmitry Muratov was attacked on a train Thursday, doused with a paint and acetone mixture that left his eyes burning, his newspaper said.

The attack came just days after Muratov, a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, was forced to suspend operations of the independent Novaya Gazeta newspaper until the end of Russia’s war with Ukraine.

“They poured oil paint with acetone in the compartment. My eyes are burning terribly,” Muratov said in a brief report issued late Thursday by his newspaper.
