The explosive device packed with projectiles had detonated in the college canteen.
Experts have found the explosive device in the Kerch college and are now studying it, announced Andrei Przhezdomsky, the spokesperson of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC) in a statement to RBC.
“Bomb techs are working at the site, studying the explosive device that had just been found,” Przhezdomsky said.
On October 17, Wednesday afternoon, a student of the Kerch Polytechnic College, Vladislav Roslyakov, opened fire in the building, after which he committed suicide. Meanwhile, an explosive device packed with projectiles detonated on the ground floor canteen.
17 people died, according to the National Anti-Terrorism Committee. Most of them were college students. Crimea’s head, Sergey Aksenov, said the toll was 18 people; 47 got injuries.The terrorist act case has been reclassified to a massacre (part 2 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code), the ICR reported.
The official car of former Deputy Head of Roskomnadzor and now Deputy Head of the Department of Project Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation, Maksim Ksenzov, tried to ram two foreign cars, after which an unknown person, who jumped out of the third car, crashed the car mirrors and beat up his driver.
The owner of the Norebo Group, Vitaly Orlov, seems to be having more problems every day. No sooner had he been recognized as Russia’s richest fishing industrialist with a net worth of over $1 billion that he got bombarded with lawsuits and criminal cases. So far, they have only been coming from his former business partner. However, taking into account all the new facts that indicate some opaque business practices at best, the authorities may take some issues with the billionaire as well, since there have been discrepancies in the figures of the fish supplied abroad, the prices, and the final profit, which may indicate attempted tax avoidance.
Crimea faces storm again. Sergey Aksenov may lose his post. Perhaps, he decided to play it safe and arrange a public scandal – his appointee to the Head of the Simferopol administration post. It is believed that Igor Lukashev and his seven deputies were allegedly dismissed due to the significant number of complaints from citizens about the traffic collapse, the poor state of road maintenance and cleaning of the city. The CrimeRussia tries to find out the real reason for the resignation of the Simferopol administration.
