Apparently a passenger onboard a Russian domestic flight took off his shoes and then his socks and his feet smelled pretty bad.
A fellow passenger, offended by the smell, started an argument with the man on their flight from Moscow to Kaliningrad and that argument continued even as the plane landed and everyone disembarked.

The passenger who took off their socks ended up “in hospital with a serious stab wound” as the fight continued into the Khrabrovo Airport parking lot. The assailant “stabbed his opponent in the chest area, causing a penetrating wound with damage to the heart.” The injured passenger fought back with “a wooden beam with nails, driven into it” that he found on the ground.
The Kaliningrad police report doesn’t identify the airline or flight where this took place. The Moscow – Kaliningrad route is served by Aeroflot, Ural Airlines, UTair, Nordavia, and S7 if including service from all 3 Moscow-area airports.
This all occurred on a 686 mile flight, the distance of Philadelphia – Chicago.
Kaliningrad police “calls the inhabitants of the region to solve any conflicts that arise peacefully! Violence and aggression do not lead to anything good!”
