MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow City Court on Monday will hold preliminary hearings in the case of “Moscow shooter” Dmitry Vinogradov who shot dead six his colleagues.
During the preliminary hearings the procedural issues will be addressed, in particular, the court may make a decision to hold the trial by jury.
In the morning of November 7, 2012 Vinogradov, “because of his hostile feelings and the need for self-assertion entered the office of the pharmaceutical company where he worked and fired many shots at his colleagues from his carbines.” As a result, three men and two women died at the scene, another man died at hospital. Only one attacked woman survived.
Vinogradov was detained by the company’s security officers who heard the shots.
He is charged under Article 105, part 2, Article 30, part 3 of the RF Criminal Code (murder of two or more persons and attempted murder of two or more persons) and Article 280, part 1 of the RF Criminal Code (public calls to extremist activity), for which Vinogradov cumulatively may face life imprisonment. The latter charge was brought against him because before his “action” he published on his VKontakte social network page a text entitled “My Manifesto” which, according to the conclusion of a psychological and linguistic expert examination, contains calls for extremist actions. “I hate human society and I’m disgusted to be part of it,” the manifesto read. “I hate the meaninglessness of human life and I hate life itself.” “There is only one way to justify it - to eradicate as much human compost as possible,” the text went on.
