In the Krasnodar region, the funeral of graduate student of St. Petersburg State University Anastasia Yeshchenko, in whose murder a historian, former associate professor of the same university and her cohabitant Oleg Sokolov, is accused, began. The funeral is held in the native village of Anastasia.
The funeral service is scheduled for 11:00 Moscow time in the Trinity Church. The body of the deceased has already been delivered to the church. Anastasia's mother needed medical attention. The deceased girl’s relatives and friends are also in the church.
Local residents say that there will be a lot of people, including the press.
“There will be many people. The Yeshchenko family is very respected. Their grandfather and father were respected people. Her grandfather worked as a coach all his life, just like her father,” one of the locals said.
There are various guesses as to where Anastasia will be buried. Either in the fifth cemetery, where her grandfather’s relatives are buried, or on the central one.
