The incident occurred yesterday, 7 April, on the RZD Moscow-Samara train. At the station in Moscow, two individuals entered the compartment where the Nobel Prize winner Muratov was sitting and poured a mixture of red oil paint and acetone on him.

“They poured red paint and acetone all over the pile. My eyes are burning terribly, and there is a smell of oil all over the car. The train is already 30 minutes late. I will try to wash,” Dmitry Muratov told Novaya Gazeta. Europe on Telegram.

One of Russia's best-known journalists, Muratov, won the Nobel Peace Prize in October 2021. In addition to publishing newspapers, he is actively involved in the social life of contemporary Russia, for example, organizing charity events for sick children. At the end of March, Muratov announced that he would auction off his Nobel medal and give the money to help Ukrainian refugees. At the same time, its newspaper was forced to suspend publication due to government repression and military censorship.

Russian media report that an anonymous group called the Union of Paratroopers has already claimed responsibility for the attack and has reportedly announced that it will continue similar actions.

Significantly, Muratov, in his Nobel Prize acceptance speech in Oslo last December, predicted Russia's missteps toward neighboring Ukraine.

“Today’s ideologues promote the idea of dying for your country and not living for your country. TV screens shall not fool us again. Let us remember what we saw on that tiny TV screen in the small room close to the railway cars filled with dead children.

Hybrid warfare and the tragic, ugly, and criminal story of the Boeing MH17 have ruined relations between Russia and Ukraine, and I do not know if the next generations will be able to restore them…

“Moreover, in the heads of some crazy geopoliticians, a war between Russia and Ukraine is not something impossible any longer,” warned in December 2021 Dmitry Muratov.
