MOSCOW, November 13 (Itar-Tass) — Closing the webpage of Dmitry Vinogradov who shot and killed his six colleagues on November 7 requires a court ruling, spokesman for the Roskomnadzor Federal Supervision Service for Communications Vladimir Pikov told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
On Monday, Moscow prosecutors demanded that access be banned to Vinogradov's page in the VKontatke social network, where he had placed misanthropic remarks and calls.
Pikov said Roskomdnadzor had not yet received documents from the prosecutor's office and had not familiarized itself with the wordings. "I believe a court ruling will be necessary in this case," he said.
Vinogradov, an employee of the Rigla pharmaceutical company, had walked into the office of his company toting two hunting rifles and proceeded to shoot at his colleagues sitting at their workstations. Six persons were killed in the massacre.
The attacker was overpowered and detained by company guards.
The investigators said the crime was motivated by jealousy and unrequited love.
