Zhirinovsky urges media not to scavenger Kerch tragedy
According to the nationalist Liberal Democrats leader, showing the footage of students being shot at the polytechnic college was too much.
Head of the LDRP party Vladimir Zhirinovsky urged media not to scavenger the details of the Kerch tragedy and not to show the terrifying footage on TV. According to him, it will only provoke other teenagers to do a “remake.”
“Showing the footage of people being shot at the Kerch College was a mistake... Why make a new Russian Columbine out of the massacre, infecting more teenagers with the ‘bloodthirstiness virus’?” Zhirinovsky said.
He noted that we should not compare the tragedy in Kerch with the massacre at the American school Columbine in 1999, since this has become a household name and is now pushing troubled teenagers around the world to commit bloody “remakes.”
To recall, fourth-year student of the college Vladislav Roslyakov staged a massacre at the Kerch Polytechnic College. He blew up a bomb in the dining room of the institution, and then began to shoot classmates.
The tragedy claimed the lives of 21 people, 50 more were wounded. The media learned that prior to the tragedy, Vladislav Roslyakov burned his personal belongings, including notebooks, pictures, flash drives, a sim card, as well as the Bible. After the shooting, he killed himself.

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.
Crimea faces storm again. Sergey Aksenov may lose his post. Perhaps, he decided to play it safe and arrange a public scandal – his appointee to the Head of the Simferopol administration post. It is believed that Igor Lukashev and his seven deputies were allegedly dismissed due to the significant number of complaints from citizens about the traffic collapse, the poor state of road maintenance and cleaning of the city. The CrimeRussia tries to find out the real reason for the resignation of the Simferopol administration.
