Moscow - Russian media mogul Alexander Lebedev delivered a powerful punch to a fellow guest on a television show, sending him flying out of his chair, a video clip posted on YouTube Sunday showed.
Lebedev is seen punching property tycoon Sergey Polonsky in the face twice during a heated economic debate, during the recording of a show intended to be aired on NTV on Sunday.
Lebedev, a former KGB agent, owns Britain's Independent and Evening Standard newspapers and co-owns Russia's Novaya Gazeta.
In a brief statement on Twitter, Polonsky said he planned to press charges against Lebedev and posted photographs showing a cut on his arm and his ripped jeans.
