KASPAROV ATTACKED IN MOSCOW

Who do you think could be behind the attack against Kasparov? From ChessBase news [Via InstaPundit.]:

Garry Kasparov was attacked after a meeting with youth activists in Moscow. He was approached by an autograph seeking participant. The young man circled Kasparov and delivered a sharp blow to the head with the chessboard. Russian news agencies place the blame on the pro-Putin organisations Nashi. We spoke to Kasparov (ChessBase.com, 04/16/05.)
