Moscow Warehouse Closed After Anti-Migrant Riots

A vegetable warehouse in a Moscow Biryulyovo district, which became one of the main targets of anti-migrant rioters during a night of violent clashes in the area, is closed for five days, local officials report.

      According to a representative of the Moscow’s department of consumer rights, the warehouse was closed due to numerous sanitary violations in the facility.

      The head of Moscow’s Southern Administrative District, Georgy Smoleyevsky, said the authorities want to shut the base down and have no plans to reopen it at another location.

      Helicopters and over a thousand police officers were dispatched to Biryulyovo in Moscow’s Southern District on Sunday afternoon as crowds began attacking police lines and local businesses, including the vegetable warehouse, after a young Russian man was knifed to death last week by a suspect believed to be non-Russian. About 380 protesters were detained during overnight disturbances.
