(AP) The artistic director of the Bolshoi ballet says he will fly to Germany to continue treatment following an acid attack that caused severe burns to his face and eyes.

An unidentified attacker threw sulphuric acid in Sergei Filin's face in Moscow on Jan. 17, as he was returning home from work.

Filin, who spoke Monday after checking out from a Moscow hospital where he underwent several operations, said he suspected who was behind the attack but wouldn't name any names as the probe is ongoing.

He wore shades and a bandage under his chin, and said he's still seeing as if through a mist as his eye treatment is continuing.

He said his wife would accompany him on a flight to Germany where he would continue recovering.
