VIDEO: Reporter gets punched in the face during live broadcast

A seemingly drunk man began harassing Russian a newscaster during a live broadcast, and ended up punching him in the face. He continued ranting while the reporter sought safety.

Nikita Razvozzhayev had just started his piece at Gorky Park in Moscow reporting on the annual Paratroopers Day celebrations.

Almost immediately, a seemingly drunk man appears clenching his fist and starts swearing.

When the journalist asks him to be quiet, the man punches him hard in the jaw and sends him staggering sideways.

The man was later identified as a Russian nationalist, and the reason for the attack was reportedly over politics. He was arrested soon after.

The man who attacked the reporter was wearing a shirt featuring the emblem of a pro-Russian terrorist group involved in the war in Ukraine.
