Slain St. Petersburg journalist had reported attacks before

A 73-year-old Russian journalist who has openly criticized President Vladimir Putin's administration died on 19 April 2017, just over a month after he was attacked and beaten by unknown aggressors.

His attackers have not been found.

Novy Petersburg editor Denis Usov believes the attack is linked to the paper's articles about corruption in the city, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported Wednesday. His newspaper also dared to report on the connections.

After his death was announced, Novy Peterburg's director Alevtina Ageev told Open Russia that "the police are unlikely to put much effort into the investigation, since Andruschenko wrote a lot about the arbitrariness in the police, and he was not liked for his intransigence".

Andrushchenko began to express concerns about Putin after he came to power in 2000, writing that the secret services were taking control over Russian Federation.

At the time, Andrushchenko's colleagues said they thought his beating and detention by authorities were attempts to intimidate him over Novy Petersburg's critical coverage of local authorities ahead of parliamentary elections.

Andrushchenko's attackers have not been identified and investigators have not released any information regarding his case.

Andrushchenko later claimed he was tortured in custody.

In 2009 a different court found him guilty of insulting a government official, bringing a 20,000-ruble fine, and handed him a suspended one-year sentence for inciting social discord against employees of the city prosecutor's office. Money was at the center of his politics right from the start.
