Agents of Moscow's criminal police department established the identity of all the attackers of Kabardino-Balkaria's Minister of Culture Zaur Tutov
Agents of Moscow's criminal police department established the identity of all the attackers of Kabardino-Balkaria's Minister of Culture Zaur Tutov, a law-enforcement official told Itar-Tass. "In all, 12 people aged between 18 and 25 were involved in the attack, including four girls who were trying to pull apart the fighters," the official said. Four assailants were detained on Monday. Of those, one was placed under arrest and another three were released on recognizance. "On Tuesday and Wednesday, detectives detained another four suspects." Of those, one remains under arrest at present, one has been released on recognizance; as for the other two, authorities have not yet decided on the measure of restriction," he added. Tutov, 54, was attacked as he went out to meet his daughter, a dancer at the Sokolinaya Gora center in Moscow on Saturday. After a rehearsal, unidentified men attacked the dancers. Zaur Tutov, who intervened to defend the teenage dancers, was seriously injured in the melee. A group of 15-20 young men aged from 20 to 25 attacked the dancers outside the cultural center. They approached Tutov and ordered him " to get out" because "Russia is for the Russians only," Madina, the wife of the regional culture minister, told Tass. Tutov said "we are all citizens of Russia." A fist-fight ensued. He was operated upon in city hospital # 1 after the attack. Zaur Tutov is well known in Russia as an opera, folk and pop singer. He went on numerous concert tours in the former Soviet Union and abroad. A Merited Artist of Russia, he was appointed Kabardino-Balkaria's culture minister six months ago.
