Grigorii Bondarevskii, a
distinguished professor and member of the Academy of Scientists, was
killed in Moscow on 7 August, presumably the victim of a robbery,
"Nezavisimaya gazeta" and gazeta.ru reported on August 11.
Bondarevskii, 83 years old and a noted Islamist who was an adviser to

mobile phone was taken during the robbery, meaning that the attack
could have been motivated by a desire for information.
