Tver Governor found media partly responsible for massacre in Redkino
Igor Rudenya advised the press to concentrate on more positive information and more active development of culture.
Governor of the Tver region Igor Rudenya casted the blame on mass media for the massacre in the village of Redkino, where nine people were shot. This is reported by Interfax.
"We see constant criminal reports on the basis of domestic quarrels, including incidents after drinking alcohol. The information flow, including the media one, has become very tense, which does not always contribute to the formation of a stable psyche in people, who are able to fall under the influence of negative factors," he said.
The Governor advised the media to concentrate on more positive information and more active development of culture.
"Educated people are not inclined to commit such crimes," Rudenya added.
Massacre occurred on the basis of domestic conflict during the feast on June 4. The man quarreled with his friends, left, and then returned with a 12-gauge carbine Taiga, from which he killed nine people - four women and five men.
Last week the whole country celebrated a landmark date - 99 years since the day of the transport police formation. However, the North-West Internal Affairs Directorate on transport was upset. Recently, the department came in sight of public due to scandals: drug trafficking, kidnapping, extortion, public fights.
