At Least 17 People Killed In Attack At School In Crimea

Kerch FM

"Where were the men who were there in large numbers?" She said most of the victims were students and more than 40 people were injured as a result of the explosion.

The attack in the city of Kerch was by far the worst school shooting by a student in Russian Federation.

The alleged perpetrator, named Vladislav Roslyakov, is said to have run from room to room as he fired, starting in the area near the canteen.

Sergei, whose shirt was covered in blood, said victims "were taken away in public transport, in minibuses and buses, with two or three people in each ambulance".

Speaking to journalists and parents of missing students in the city of Kerch, where the shooting took place, Crimean leader Sergei Aksyonov said the death toll stood at 18 plus the killer.

He said police arrived about 10 minutes later to evacuate people and he saw dead bodies on the floor and charred walls.

Officials said the fourth-year student killed himself in the library of the Kerch Polytechnic College after the attack.

In line with current stories, the capturing within the Kerch School killed 21 individuals, together with the Roslyakova.

Soon after the attack, Russian officials said they were investigating the possibility that it was terrorism.

President Vladimir Putin, meanwhile, portrayed the mass shooting in Kerch as a "result of globalization" - forces that were exporting bad practices into Russian Federation.

Putin deplored the attack as a "tragic event" and offered condolences to the victims' families at a news conference in Sochi, where he had talks with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.




He promised that the government will do everything necessary to help those wounded.

A woman cries during a church service for the victims of the college attack in Kerch, Crimea, on October 18, 2018, after a student opened fire at a technical college in the Russian-annexed Crimea city of Kerch.

He said investigators were looking into the circumstances of the attack and the motive of the attacker.

People lay flowers in downtown Simferopol after nineteen people were killed and dozens more wounded.

"I'm sorry for the people he shot and I'm very sorry that he killed himself".

Following the explosion in the college, criminal proceedings under the Russian Criminal Code's article on the terrorist attack have been initiated.

The distrust of the official thesis remember that Crimea, annexed in march 2014 after a referendum deemed illegal by the global community, is not a Russian region as the other.

In Crimea, officials said they would review security measures at schools.

"The President has instructed the Ministry of Health and Emergency Services Ministry to take emergency measures to assist victims of this explosion, if necessary, to ensure the urgent transportation of seriously wounded patients to leading medical institutions of Russian Federation, whether in Moscow or other cities", Peskov said.

Among the adults who died in the attack was a maths teacher at the college, 57-year-old Svetlana Baklanova, and her 26-year-old daughter Anastasia Baklanova who also worked at the college, handling finance and tax issues, reported Moscow-based daily newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets.
