A Russian man of Armenian origin has been stabbed to death by a group of young people on a train in a Moscow suburb, Moscow Echo radio quoted a lawyer as saying Tuesday.
Simon Tsaturian, who represents the family of another ethnic Armenian killed in Moscow last month, said the stabbing of Artur Sardarian, 19, took place on May 25 and cited witnesses as saying the attackers were chanting "Glory to Russia!"
The attackers then stopped the train by setting off an alarm and escaped, Tsaturian said.
Moscow police said the incident was being investigated and the Armenian Union of Russia confirmed the murder had taken place.
Tsaturian represents the family of Vigen Abramiants, who was stabbed to death in a Moscow metro station on April 22. The lawyer said both Abramiants and Sardarian were killed for racist motives.
