The journalist, Nikita Razvozzhayev, asked the unknown man to keep away, when he out of nowhere tried indulging in a conversation with him. He came again, this time with all his force and punched the reporter hard enough to cause an injury. He just walked away after that, paying no heed to whatever must have happened to the journalist. This was the time when the viewership of the channel rose and the network had to suddenly cut the broadcast. While people who watched the entire incident, stood silent and did nothing to help the journalist.

As per a report, the attacker was believed to be drunk. He was arrested shortly after. The blame of the incident was  put on the paratroopers by people on social media who them as a rowdy bunch who drink in public places, bathe in fountains and harass passers-by.
