 Mikhail Verevskoy beaten to death in St. Petersburg
Russian police investigating into the circumstances of the death of Russian Jew Mikhail Verevskoy, a 27-year old father-to-be, who was brutally beaten late the night between March 28-29, while on his way home in St. Petersburg, ‘’ reported.
The incident took place after Verevskoy was shopping at the local grocery store when he was suddenly set upon by his assailant.
The suspect, Ahmed Kharsha, 36, was arrested on suspicion of committing the crime but was released shortly after on bail. Russian authorities said that he was prohibited from leaving the city and added that they have not ruled out the possibility that anti-Semitic was the motive behind the fatal attack.

Verevskoy pronounced dead in the hospital on Monday, three days before he was to celebrate his 28th birthday and while his wife is in labor.

A Russian news website claimed that the attack occurred following a fight, but now investigators are looking into whether it was a premeditated murder.

The Russian-born Verevskoy studied architecture and civil engineering at St. Petersburg State University. He immigrated to Israel in 2010, before drafting into the IDF. He lived in Jerusalem until returning to Russia in 2012.
