MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Chairperson of the Committee for Security and Counteraction to Corruption in State Duma’s lower house of Russian parliament Irina Yarovaya called for restricting toughly the spread of arms in Russia and harsher control for keeping arms by its owners. “This is a correct way to protect the life and health of people,” she told reporters while commenting on a tragic incident staged at Moscow secondary school # 263 in the northeast of the Russian capital on Monday.
In her view, a grave crime that is not typical for Russia was committed. “Obviously, we should not amass our own problems and such regretful experience,” the lawmaker noted. “We should draw conclusions from those horrible examples that take place almost daily in the United States,” she added.
The chair of the parliamentary committee believes that serious inquiry in three additional circumstances should be conducted in this crime. “First, it is needed to find out where and under which circumstances a teenager could have gotten the guns,” she said. “Secondly, it should be realized why security measures at the school entrance provided by the security guard agency failed,” the lawmaker noted.
“Thirdly, it is needed to take a look at psychological status of this student, and find out which conflict situation preceded this incident,” Yarovaya said. “Unfortunately, an aggressive trend of computer games, its spread on the Internet certainly leaves its trace in the psychology of young people,” she concluded.
A criminal case was opened under three articles of Russia’s Criminal Code for hostage-taking, murder and attempt on the life of law enforcers over the armed incident staged at the Moscow secondary school, where a high-school student entered the building with guns and was detained, spokesman of the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Monday.
