MOSCOW, November 20 (Itar-Tass) — Children's ombudswoman in the Primorye Territory Anna Lichkovakha will check the Internet video showing schoolgirls beating their coeval, Lichkovakha's press service reported on Tuesday.
A pre-investigation probe is now underway over the appearance on the Internet of the video showing four schoolgirls of about 16 beating their coeval. "All the girls are pupils of different schools; the victim studied at a grammar school. The whereabouts of all the attackers are being ascertained," the ombudswoman noted.
The instruction to check the video showing the beating came from Russia's children's ombudsman Pavel Astakhov.
Astakhov believes the culprits should be held criminally responsible, despite their young age. He reminded about similar incidents last year.
"The high-profile attacks this year include the beating of a schoolgirl in the town of Gusev /Kaliningrad region/. Similar incident occurred in the Bryansk, Irkutsk and Tula regions, where adolescents videoed the beatings," he said.
On Monday, a video was placed on the Internet in Vladivostok showing three girls beating a schoolgirl as the fourth was video-recording.
