Prominent Journalist Flees Russia after Arson Attack on Car

Monday, 11 September 2017 05:51 AM

MOSCOW (AP) — A prominent journalist says she has fled Russia following a suspected arson attack on her car.

Yulia Latynina, a radio host and a columnist with the Novaya Gazeta newspaper, said that she fled Russia and is "unlikely to return any time soon." She didn't say where she went.

One of the most scathing critics of the Kremlin, Latynina told Ekho Moskvy radio station Sunday she had been followed before and briefly given police protection. Latynina said she is "pretty scared" after her car was set on fire when she was out of town and her elderly parents had to put it out.

Last year, an unidentified assailant threw a bucket of feces at her. Novaya Gazeta then issued a statement, saying she had received death threats.
