YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The authorities of Russia’s Sakhalin Island will offer pecuniary aid to the families of those killed and injured in a shooting at Sakhalin’s main cathedral on Sunday, the press service of the regional governor and government said on Monday without specifying the amount of assistance.
A nun and a churchgoer were killed and six people were wounded when a private security guard opened fire in an Orthodox cathedral at about 2 pm, local time, on Sunday. The attacker, a local resident, was detained at the scene.
“A wild, barbarous attack on people in a church has outraged many fellow countrymen and me personally. It had never happened in our region before and I hope it will never repeat,” Governor Alexander Khoroshavin said. “No matter what motives guided the young man who opened fire at innocent people, this crime cannot be justified. By a lucky chance we did not have a bigger number of casualties,” he added. Khoroshavin said the regional government would defray the funeral expenses.
“I believe law enforcement and supervising agencies must establish order in the activity of different private guard service companies. Especially as concerns their licensing, staff management, the issuing of different permissions and training of personnel as well as of course weapons handling,” the governor said.
“The incident testifies to a weak control and maybe possible omissions. All people responsible for that must be punished, and violations must be eliminated. This is my strong stance,” the press service quoted the governor as saying.
