The city says goodbye to victims of a violent attack at school
Last week will be marked by mourning in the Russian-Ukrainian Kerch. Residents are shocked by the brutal attack on the school. Everyone is wondering: why did this happen? Families hide their loved ones. The striker killed 20 people and over 40 people were injured.
What happened in Kerch? The circumstances of the attack are still unknown?
Kerch is a small town located in the Crimea, a region that still has no clear political situation – on the one hand remains in the administrative region of Ukraine, on the other hand, the Russian government claims its own rights to the area. It is not known whether this was related to the attack.
The tragedy occurred on Wednesday, last week. 20 people died and over 40 are in a serious condition. It is a powerful blow to a city of 140,000, which seemed calm. The families of the victims say goodbye to their loved ones, after the ceremony there was a 3-day mourning.
The attack took place in a technical school. The striker turned out to be 18-year-old Vladislav Roslakov, who detonated an explosive charge and opened fire from hunting weapons to students and teachers. Then he committed suicide. The motives of the perpetrator’s actions are unknown.
The attackers were mainly his peers – schoolchildren and teachers. The mourning lasted for 3 days, and the farewell of the victims of the mass attack took place during a solemn mass celebrated on the square in the city center. Residents joined in grief with the families of the dead and laid flowers on the graves. The memory of the killed students and teachers was celebrated with a minute of silence.
Now is the time to investigate. What was the reason for the attack? Did it have to come to a tragedy? Did the bomber have helpers? Let us remind you that this is not the only situation in the world. The massacre with the largest-ever number of fatalities in a school in the United States occurred in 1927 in Batch, Michigan.
The most tragic shooting in history took place on April 16, 2007 at Virginia Polytechnic and State University in Blacksburg. In total, 33 people were killed and 25 were injured. The perpetrator, student Cho Seung-hui, also committed suicide.
