Alexei Venediktov, the former editor of leading Russian opposition radio station Echo of Moscow, says he was subjected to an antisemitic attack at his home.
Venediktov, who has Jewish heritage, says a severed pig’s head was left in front of his door. A picture of a Ukrainian coat of arms with the word “judensau” across its front was attached to the door.
“Judensau,” or Jewish pig, is an antisemitic trope used in Medieval Europe to mock Jews as swine.
Venediktov says the act is an attempt to intimidate him.
