Moscow Warehouse Temporarily Closed After Anti-Migrant Retz · 2014-12-10 12:47

A vegetable warehouse in a Moscow suburb, one of the main targets of anti-migrant rioters during a night of violent clashes in the area, is closed for five days, a consumer watchdog official said on Monday.

A deputy head of Moscow’s department of consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor, Yelena Ignatova, said an unscheduled inspection has already revealed 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.

“It is to be closed by a court ruling, Rospotrebnadzor is going to request [the court] about it,” he said,

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.
