Champion of Russia in hand-to-hand fighting is victim of St. Petersburg terrorist attack
In the lists of the victims there is 25-year-old Denis Petrov, who wore the title of the champion for kickboxing and the winner of the Russian wrestling competition.
One of the victims of the terrorist attack in St. Petersburg became 25-year-old Denis Petrov. According to Life, the young man was the champion of the country in army hand-to-hand combat and the champion of St. Petersburg in kickboxing.
Last year Denis worked as a trainer in hand-to-hand fighting, the portal writes. In the organization, where Denis Petrov worked, confirmed the information about his death.
"He went to the training, but he did not get there. He was a very good man, he was very fond of children, they happily visited training. There are very little athletes as he, he had a great future," Life quotes colleague of the deceased athlete Alena.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, the investigation suggests that it was Akbarzhon Jalilov who left the bomb at the Ploshchad Vosstaniya station and then launched an explosive device in the train car on the railway between Sennaya Ploshchad and Technologichesky Institut.
Recall, on April 3 at 14:40 in the third car of the train, moving along the blue branch of the St. Petersburg subway, an act of terrorism was committed. It happened a few minutes after the train left the station Sennaya Ploshchad towards the Technologichesky Institut. As a result of the bomb explosion, 14 people were killed and about 50 others were injured of varying severity. The unexploded bomb was discovered and defused at the station Ploshchad Vosstaniya.
Oleg Zaytsev had wide connections within the criminal world and law enforcement agencies. This is being related to an organized crime group headed by Ruslan Kilievich that had allegedly been patronized by a former Federal Security Service Directorate officer Oleg Natalchenko. The crime group had also been a core driver for almost disbanding the criminal investigation department of the police.
