MOSCOW, October 4 (Itar-Tass) — The Investigative Committee (SK) said there was no ethnic hate behind the murder of an 18-year-old resident of Podolsk, Moscow Region.
"In the evening of October 2, a conflict flared up between an 18-year-old youth and a 22-year-old local resident, as they were queuing for discotheque tickets. They brushed each other with their shoulders which started the row, and several people joined the conflict," SK spokesman Vladimir Markin said.
An acquaintance walked up to one of the parties to the conflict. "Assuming that four young people were confronting him and his friend, he inflicted a stab wound on an 18-year-old local resident, and three non-penetrating cut wounds on his 19-year-old friend. Both victims were rushed to a local hospital, but the 18-year-old died as medics were providing assistance," Markin said.
Police are ascertaining the personal data of the murder suspect, and taking measures to find him.
In the past few days, the media reported the death of Podolsk resident Andrei Uryupin, a CSKA fan, in a fight between a group of young people and natives of Dagestan.
"The information on the nationality of the suspect placed on the Internet with reference to sources in law-enforcement bodies does not correspond to reality and is not confirmed by the criminal case materials," the SK spokesman underlined.
Also, the investigators have evidence that the conflict had no ethnic motive, as the attacker (supposedly a native of Azerbaijan) intervened on behalf of his Russian acquaintance, the SK said.
