The offices of Snob, a Moscow-based online news magazine, have been ransacked and its equipment destroyed, employees of the media outlet say.

Staff members at Snob told RFE/RL on June 10 that police are investigating the incident, which took place overnight.

Snob's chief editor, Ksenia Chudinova. wrote on Telegram that the unidentified attacker, whose motives remain unknown, had also ransacked another company's office in the same building.

Chudinova also wrote that staff were unable to enter the office because investigators were working there.
