Ivan Skripnichenko was one of those volunteers who guarded the elemental memorial formed on the Great Moskvoretsky Bridge, informally called the “Nemtsov Bridge”. The editors of uznayvse.ru note that after Boris Nemtsov was killed in February 2015 with several shots in the back, people did not stop bringing flowers, candles and portraits to the bridge.
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.
