18 dead in Crimea college rampage

Kerch FM

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered his security services to establish the cause of the blast and hunt down those respsonsible. Initially thought to be a terrorist attack, officials later classified it as mass murder.

Bomb disposal experts of the FSB have been deployed to the college in Kerch, Crimea, a Black Sea peninsula which Russian Federation annexed from Ukraine four years ago. Kerch is the point on the peninsula where a bridge linking Crimea to Russian Federation makes landfall on the Crimean side.Putin opened the bridge to road traffic in May this year, getting behind the wheel of a truck to drive it across the bridge. Military units were deployed around the college to help emergency agencies.

But alongside photographs of the shooters in both incidents, wearing strikingly similar outfits, RT points out that the perpetrators of both attacks were the same age, hit their school cafeterias with explosive devices, killed their classmates and finally committed suicide in their school libraries.

Sergei Melikov, a deputy chief of the Russian National Guard, said the device was homemade.

Committee spokesman Andrei Przhezdomsky said bomb squads were working "at the blast site", adding that the body of Roslyakov was found in the college next to a pump-action gun.

Aleskei Titkov, a sociologist from the Civil Initiatives Committee, argues that the fact that numerous victims were teenagers makes the events in Kerch all the more dramatic for Russians.

"The history of Crimea will be divided in two - before and after October 17", he said.

"I locked the door, hoping he wouldn't hear me", the paper quoted Gavrilov as saying.

Authorities determined that an explosive was also used in the attack, but the Investigative Committee, Russia's top crime investigation agency, found that all the victims died of gunshot wounds.

Cannabis becomes legal in Canada
Some are operating government-run stores, some are allowing private retailers, some both. "We are just ecstatic", she said. Medical marijuana is legal in some form in 30 states, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

According to the RIA Novosti agency, security forces raided Roslyakov's family home following the killings.

Olga Grebennikova told Crimean television she and other witnesses saw bodies everywhere after the man started opened fire indiscriminately.

Pupils and college staff were among those killed, she said.

Early this year, a teenager armed with an axe attacked fellow students at a school in Buryatia in southern Siberia, wounding five students and a teacher.

"The sports teacher told us to get out and we ran into the courtyard".

Another witness who gave his name as Sergei and who worked nearby said in a video on the Kerch.tv website that he heard "a bang and shots". The paper said Roslyakov's mother is a Jehovah's Witness - a Christian organisation considered "extremist" and banned in Russian Federation.

"This person was under the strong influence of Western subculture", said Sergey Mikheyev, a political analyst speaking on a nightly current-affairs show on Russian state television.

The head of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, and Russia's health minister, have headed to the area.

Crimea, internationally recognized as part of Ukraine, was annexed by Russian Federation in 2014.
