The Kremlin dismissed Tuesday any criticism over the knife attack on a liberal radio journalist as work of a "madman" amid accusations the state fomented an atmosphere of hatred toward dissenters.The suspect, identified as Boris Grits, a 48-year-old mentally unstable man, broke into the radio station's offices in central Moscow and lunged at the journalist with a knife after blinding a security guard with a spray.The suspect's relative told mass-circulation newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets that Grits, who is a national of both Russia and Israel, arrived in Russia more than a month ago and complained several times that the Echo of Moscow journalist had been stalking him for a while now.The man said Grits looked jittery three days before the attack, adding he was surprised he had actually hurt the journalist.
