A fight with the participation of migrants took place in the Moscow subway. A passenger suffered a serious injury, whereas a policeman, who detained several participants of the fight, was hospitalized.
The fight with the participation of nine people took place on Monday night in a carriage, while the train was traveling in the tunnel between Baumanskaya and Elektrozavodskaya stations, Interfax reports.
An unemployed male, a Muscovite, suffered a stab wound in the chest as a result of the fight. When the train stopped, the fight continued on the platform. A police officer, who was on duty on the platform, arrested six men. All of them were drunk. Two of them turned out to be the nationals of Kyrgyzstan (formerly a republic of the Soviet Union).
The police officer suffered various injuries during the arrest. He was hospitalized together with the passenger, who, as was mentioned above, also suffered in the fight.
Two other Kyrgyz nationals, who escaped after the fight in the subway, were later arrested at "Bishkek Night" café.
Migrants from neighboring state or Russian regions frequently appear in news messages about fights in the Moscow subway. A resident of Dagestan fired his traumatic pistol at a Muscovite on Mayakovskaya station in December. The latter received an injury of the hip. Several days later, another national of Dagestan opened fire from the traumatic pistol on Dmitry Donskoi Boulevard station. The man was disarmed and arrested.
