20-year-old Yury Vlasko has been stabbed right in the heart.

On the shore of Lake Baikal in Buryatia, 20-year-old fighter Yury Vlasko was killed during a mass brawl.

The police dispatch center received the report on the athlete's murder today, on July 29 at 05:10. Law enforcement officers who arrived at the scene, found stab wounds on the body of the young man.

According to the Buryatia ICR Investigations Directorate, the mass brawl took place on the shore of Lake Baikal near the village Goryachinsk, Pribaikalsky district.

As the deceased athlete's friends told Infpol, he was in the country together with participants of the international tournament in freestyle wrestling among juniors. Vlasko wanted to show visitors the republic’s beauty. The wrestler himself also took part in the tournament, which was taking place in Ulan-Ude.

According to Gazeta nomer odin's intelocutors, Vlasko was already sleeping when some people came to him and said that his folks were beaten by the lake. He immediately jumped up and ran to the rescue. The fighter's friends told that he had been "hit in the heart with a knife."

The ICR has initiated a criminal case under Murder (part 1 of Art. 105 of the Russian Criminal Code). Senior Assistant to the Chief of Buryatia ICR said that "the suspect pool has already been identified, but the investigation is complicated by the fact that there was a mass brawl."

As Life reported, the law enforcement officers have detained three suspects. Vlasko's friends have also been brought to the police for interrogation.
