MOSCOW, October 10 (RIA Novosti)
Table-waiting has joined the list of potentially fatal jobs in Russia, after a drunken café patron in Moscow Region killed a steward with a single blow from his beer mug, local police reported on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old customer was acting out of “hooliganistic intent” when he hit the waiter on the head, the police report said, but did not give more details.
The waiter, a Bosnia and Herzegovina citizen whose name was withheld, spent six days in a Russian hospital before dying of his head injury, police said.
Police tracked, detained and charged the offender, the report said, without elaborating. The incident took place in the city of Serpukhov in late September, but was not reported earlier.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
