ST. PETERSBURG, August 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The police have opened a criminal case for hooliganism over the attack on an editor of the St. Petersburg Quality newspaper that was committed on Tuesday, a source in the police department in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region told Itar-Tass on Thursday.

The incident occurred on July 31, 2012 at about 16:30 Moscow time at 3, Ladygin Street. “The unidentified offender has made no less than two shots, probably from a traumatic pistol, at the editor of the newspaper out of hooliganism,” the source said. The bullets got the cheekbone and the palm of the left hand of the man. Vladimir Vishnevetsky is undergoing treatment at the hospital.

The police spokesman explained that the criminal case was opened under Article 213 of the Russian Criminal Code for hooliganism, because “the reasons for the incident are unclear.” The article of the Criminal Code, under which the criminal case was opened, may be changed during the investigation.

Meanwhile, regional media link the attack on the editor of the newspaper with occupational or public activities of the victim.
