MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Ministry of Education and Science will file a request with the Office of the President to award the Moscow teacher Andrei Kirillov, who died Monday at the age of 32 while trying to disarm a teenager armed with a carbine, Anna Usachova, director of the ministry’s Department for Information and Regional Policies told Itar-Tass.
The teenager, who had taken the carbine from his father, had broken into a school in the northeast of Moscow, and took his classmates hostage.
“The Ministry of Education and Science expresses deep heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of teacher Andrei Kirillov and police sergeant Sergei Bushuyev and it is drafting a request to the President to award Andrei Kirillov with the Order of Valor posthumously,” Usachova said.
Andrei Kirillov taught geography to the students of senior grades and was the supervising instructor at Grade 5. Moscow City education system officials said he was loved by his students and highly respected by fellowteachers.
“Today’s tragedy took away his life but his courage made it possible to save the lives of dozens of adolescents and grownups,” Usachova said.
