A resident of St. Petersburg, who told on air about the fact that policemen beat him during detention, was found dead in the temporary detention cell of the 23rd Police Department of the Nevsky District. This is reported by Fontanka.
According to the information of the publication, 34-year-old Rustam Klychev published a video on his page on VKontakte, where he showed the traces of beatings.
“Look, so that no one tells me I'm making this up, you see, what my leg looks like?” said Klychev showing his broken shin to subscribers.
He also claimed that he did not know what he was detained for. The police said that the man was detained in the afternoon near his house in a state of alcoholic intoxication.
The next day after his detention, he, as the investigation believes, committed suicide. On the fact of his death, a case was initiated under the article “Negligence.”
According to Fontanka, Klychev came to Petersburg from the Penza Region. He had a wife and two daughters, one of whom was 10 months old. His relatives in Penza have already asked people on social networks to help the family financially.
In the 2000s, Western Europe had welcomed refugees from Chechnya. In 2018, it has finally realized the criminal potential of dozens of thousands of mountain dwellers who had left their native land because of reprisals and economic disorder. Many of those who had fought against the Russian army in the first and second Chechen wars and their grown-up children skilled in weapons and practicing martial arts have united into street gangs. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why the Germans and Austrians don’t feel themselves comfortable in their countries anymore.
