A resident of the village of Novy Burets, Kirov Region, who was sentenced to 14 years in prison for murder in 2020, went to war with the help of the Wagner PMC, was pardoned and killed a man again.
The man's name is Ivan Rossomahin. The investigation claims that in 2019 he killed a fellow villager who tried to drive him away from her plot. He beat and strangled her, after which he dragged the corpse into the bathhouse, where he "decided to stage an accident" by placing it face down on a rake. A month later, he also robbed a passer-by in the city of Vyatskiye Polyany. He was found guilty of murder and robbery.
On March 21, Rossomahin returned to his native village, and since then, according to the Vyatskiye Polyany TV channel, "he kept his fellow villagers in fear, threatening their lives." One day, a man walked around the village in a state of intoxication, holding a pitchfork and an ax in his hands, and shouted: “I will kill everyone, I will cut the whole family.” Also, Vyatskiye Polyany showed a report showing how Rossomahin breaks the windows of two cars with an axe. The local district police officer said that on March 22 the man was detained, and the next day he was arrested for five days for petty hooliganism.
The head of the regional department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Vadim Varankin, promised the frightened local residents that on March 28, Rossomahin would go back to the war. It probably never happened. As Baza and Omutninskiye Vesti write, after the Vyatskiye Polyany report was released, the man was again detained on suspicion of killing a woman. Her son reported that she had been beaten. She also suffered stab wounds. The police are checking.
