From MosNews:

Two young men wearing gas masks attacked Moscow’s only kosher foods store, spraying unknown gas and shouting out anti-Semitic slogans, Interfax reported Sunday quoting the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia.

Short before the closing time on Saturday, two young men broke into the shop in Maryina Rosha, a few minutes’ walk away from the Jewish Community Center.

The men were wearing gas masks, one had a Kalashnikov gun dummy in his hands. After spraying the unidentified gas, they took the insides of the store to pieces, the Federation’s officials said.

“The attackers were shouting ”Beat the Jews, save Russia!“ and hailing Hitler,” Rabi Uri Spassky, who witnessed the scene, said.

The attackers were identified as two employees of a nearby shop, chairman of the Federation’s board Alexander Boroda told the Ekho Moskvy radio station.
