Police Major who promised to "describe the corpse" gets term
The police officer ignored the call, which led to the death of the woman.
The Sovetsky District Court of Orel sentenced the former district police officer, Police Major Natalia Bashkatova to two years in a penal colony for negligence, which caused the death of Yana Savchuk. Bashkatova replied: “ If you get killed, we'll visit the scene, will describe corpse. Do not worry!" on the woman’s call for help.
In November 2016, Savchuk's partner Andrey Bochkov severely beat her, and the woman died in hospital. On the day of the beating, the woman called the police, but she did not receive help and got hurt again.
Bashkatova's sentence did not enter into legal force and can be appealed.
