A Scandal at the Bolshoi Ballet
David Remnick, New Yorker
For weeks preceding the attack, Filin had been subjected to anonymous threats and harassment. Someone was repeatedly ringing his cell phone and hanging up. Someone hacked his e-mail accounts; his in-box was flooded with crude messages. Someone slashed his tires. Someone set up fake Facebook pages in Filin’s name and posted obscene material intended to embarrass him.
TAGGED: Sergei Filin, Russia, Bolshoi Theater
