Brutal beating of 10-y.o. boy hits video

The Investigative Committee has already responded to the incident.

In the Leningrad region, peers have brutally beaten a fourth grader.

The fight took place near school No. 1 in the city of Kommunar, Gatchina district, 47news reports. The video filmed by schoolchildren shows one of the boys throwing the other to the ground. After that, the third begins to kick him on the head.  The beaten schoolboy shouted: “Please, stop, please!”

It turned out that all participants in the beating were 10-year-old. According to class teacher Elena Obolenskaya, the boy who behaved himself the most aggressively in the video has a dysfunctional family.

“Well, what do you want if he is raised in such an environment? I have been their class teacher since September 1, and I already see that the situation is mismanaged. He smokes, uses obscene language in class, panhandles. Constant fights and quarrels in the family. Parents do not work; they live on benefits. The child needs to be taken care of. I tried to do it, but to no avail. His friends are 14 and 17, it’s hard to influence them. Another question is that this has been going on for more than a year now. Where does guardianship look anyway?”  the teacher said.

This is not the first time that he fourth-grader has attacked other students, a representative of the parent committee, Valentina Marchenko, said.

“He behaved normally in the first grade, and then it all began. A teacher had to quit job because of a conflict with him. The family is registered with various institutions. The parents of other children have repeatedly turned to both the director and the police, but got no reaction. Last year, he broke a boy’s hand and regularly beat girls,” she said.

The Investigative Committee of the Leningrad region took interest in the video clip showing the schoolboy beating in Kommunar.

“During a check, the investigator will study the living conditions and training of the parties to the conflict, as well as evaluate the actions of officials of the prevention system, including employees of the school where the teenagers study. A procedural decision will be taken after the check,” the ICR said.
