Filin sounds like a Jewish name, and we all know how virulently Jews are hated in Russia. Assuming Sergei Filin is indeed Jewish, could that have something to do with why this harassment got this far? Prior to the horrific attack, Filin had experienced other incidents, like having his tires slashed. Did the police fail to take them seriously and follow up because they had more important priorities than "that Jew?"
If a similar acid attack had happened on an African-American staff member in Mississippi, and local police had been half-hearted about previous threats, that hypothetical scenario might be the perfect analogy.
