Journalist Felgengauer leaves hospital

MOSCOW. Nov 3 (Interfax) - Ekho Moskvy journalist Tatyana Felgengauer, who was wounded in the neck in an attack at her editorial office, has been discharged from hospital.

"Tatyana Felgengauer has been discharged from hospital," Ekho Moskvy editor-in-chief Alexei Venediktov said on Telegram.

The attack took place in Ekho Moskvy's editorial office on October 23.

An unknown man forced his way into the editorial office, blinded the security guard by spraying him with pepper spray, and stabbed the journalist in the neck. The attacker was detained by the radio station's security guard and was handed over to law enforcement. The attacker was later identified as Boris Grits, 48.

The man was charged with attempting to kill Felgengauer. He partially admits his guilt. When he was questioned, he said he had attacked the journalist because she "telepathically stalked" him.
