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.
Businessman Mikhail Derbenev’s death year ago and "Tyumen-Sevastopol" partnership: where’s the link?
In early June last year, 40-year-old Director of the state-owned unitary enterprise Proekt Razvitiya Balaklavy ('Balaklava Development Project') Mikhail Derbenev was found dead in his Sevastopol apartment. He died under mysterious circumstances, and his death was preceded by a scandal about 380 million rubles ($5.9 mln) from budget of Yugra that disappeared in offshores in Cyprus and Seychelles through OOO Lloyd-Patterson, the founder of which he is still him. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what could have caused the businessman’s death, what is the connection between Tyumen, Yugra, Sevastopol and Karachay-Cherkessia, how the governor Ovsyannikov develops Balaklava (and does he?) and why the head of the Ministry of Construction Vladimir Yakushev and Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin have been spoted in this story.
