In Buryatia , a 37-year-old resident of the Ivolginsky district was found guilty of the attempted murder of his former cohabitant and her minor children, as well as the deliberate destruction of their property. This was reported by the press service of the Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee for the region.
The incident occurred on May 23, 2022 in the village of Sotnikovo. A drunken Russian came to the house of his former cohabitant and tried to go inside. The woman did not let him in, and the accused locked the entrance and set fire to the house, knowing that there were also minor children of his ex-cohabitant.
Cries for help were heard by students passing near the house. Passers-by helped to bend the bars on the windows and save the woman and her children. After some time, the arsonist was arrested.
“By a court verdict, the man was sentenced to 9.5 years in prison with serving in a strict regime colony. The court also satisfied the civil claim of the victim for the recovery of 2.5 million rubles from the convict in compensation for property and moral damage, ”the report says.
