Kerch shooter learn from veterans of Chechnya and Donbass
Vladislav Roslyakov started showing interest in weapons since he was 14 years old.
Kerch shooter Vladislav Roslyakov was 14 years old when he started showing interest in weapons. One of his acquaintances, who met Roslyakov on the Internet, told MK about the student’s attitude to arms. They met about five years ago via an online game.
The friend of Roslyakov is much older than he was. He had pictures from Chechnya on a page in a social network, which attracted the attention of the student.
“For two years, he had been asking me where to get a weapon, which one is better, and whether it is possible to buy one. He asked who sells weapons, which one shoots better. As far as I understood, he was interested in this topic, he read a lot of serious literature about weapons,” the source said.
The teenager had many friends online who fought in Chechnya and Donbass. He asked them about the characteristics of different types of weapons and how to buy it.
“I would not be surprised if one of his virtual friends had taught him how to shoot,” the MK source said.

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.
