MOSCOW, March 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow police chief Vladimir Kolokoltsev intends to personally check the information about the beating of a Kommersant FM Radio female reporter by policemen during the mass opposition meeting in Moscow on March 5, the city police department's press service head Yelena Alexeyeva told Itar-Tass.
Earlier, radio editor in chief Dmitry Solopov published an open letter addressed to Kolokoltsev in connection with the fact that, in his words, correspondent Ulyana Malashenko, who was on the editorial office's assignment, was struck with a baton on her head by a policeman.
"When reading your open address and very well realizing what the consequences of a baton strike on the head are, chief of the Russian Interior Ministry's Moscow department Vladimir Kolokoltsev asks you to immediately give the address of the medical centre, where the journalist was taken to an intensive therapy ward," the Moscow police press service head said, in reply to Solopov's letter.
Kolokoltsev is ready to personally go there with other officers and immediately organize investigative work to establish who is guilty, if the fact is confirmed, Alexeyeva noted.
