Volunteer Ivan Skripnichenko, who was attacked on August 15, 2017 at the site of the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, died in the hospital. He went there to eliminate the effects of a broken nose and died, according to preliminary data, due to a broken blood clot.
On August 15, 2017, according to activist Tamara Lugovykh, an unknown man approached Ivan Skripnichenko on the bridge, tried to start a conversation with him, and when Skripnichenko dodged, he turned him in the nose.
According to Tamara Lugovyh, a certain “aggressive ambala” attacked Skripnichenko with shouts “are you not in love with Putin ?!” After the attack, Skripnichenko went to the hospital with a broken nose. He was examined and sent home for outpatient treatment. On August 20, the volunteer returned to correct the consequences of the fracture, and died in hospital.
