"Skopinskiy maniac" Mokhov was released from custody in the case of concealing a murder, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the regional investigation department of the RF IC.

In August last year, the court sent Mokhov under house arrest in this case, but he violated the conditions, and he was returned to the pre-trial detention center. According to investigators, on the day of the Airborne Forces, five acquaintances came to visit Mokhov. The company was drinking, at some point Mokhov decided that one of them, Shchukin, had stolen a goose from him. Another friend - Yevgeny Polishchuk - stood up for the "Skopin maniac", hitting Shchukin in the neck with his elbow, and killed him on the spot. At night, Mokhov helped a friend drag the body into the courtyard of an abandoned house, the body was found a few days later.
Viktor Mokhov was sentenced to 17 years for kidnapping two girls in 2000 - a 17-year-old vocational school student and a 14-year-old night school student - and kept them in the basement of a garage for four years, where he systematically raped them.
In March 2021, Mokhov was released from the colony. He was placed under administrative supervision for six years with a number of restrictions. After his release, Mokhov gave an interview to Ksenia Sobchak. During an interview, he stated that one of his victims gave birth to children by him, but stopped having children when she was rescued. “I need to do it again,” said Mokhov.
