Young Russian nationalist confesses to killing 37
14:40 | 28/ 05/ 2007
MOSCOW, May 28 (RIA Novosti) - A young nationalist suspected of killing an Armenian businessman confessed to killing 37 people together with his friend, a popular Russian daily said Monday.
Vremya Novostei reported that Artur Ryno, a student at an icon painting school, detained in mid-April on suspicion of killing Karen Abramyan, an Armenian, told investigators that he has "since school hated people from the Caucasus who come to Moscow, unite and oppress Russians," and added that he suddenly realized "the city needed to be cleaned."
Ryno said he and his friend Pavel Skachevsky, both aged 18, attacked and killed dark-skinned people in Moscow's suburbs. They did not confess to the Armenian's murder until a videotape from surveillance cameras installed at the building's entrance where Abramyan lived was shown to them.
Prosecutors said Ryno and Skachevsky were detained after an eyewitness called the police and said the two people who stabbed Abramyan 20 times escaped in a streetcar. Police stopped the streetcar and arrested the two students whose clothes and a knife found on them were covered in blood.
A police source said: "At first we doubted whether what Ryno said was true - he mentioned too many details and boasted about what he had done, but at the same time the dates and crime scenes named were not precise. But the investigations we have carried out confirm that everything he says is true." However, Ryno's accomplice, Skachevsky has denied attacking anyone.
Vremya Novostei wrote that the teenagers carried out their first killing August 21, 2006, which coincided with an explosion carried out by skinheads at Moscow's Cherkizovsky market, where many traders from the North Caucasus region, former Central Asian Soviet republics, as well as Vietnam and China worked. The explosion left 11 people dead and at least 49 injured.
Ryno said when they were attacking people, bystanders did not interfere, preferring to leave the crime scene as quickly as possible.
Routine attacks by skinheads and young gangs on foreigners and people with non-Slavic features have been reported across Russia in recent years. But authorities have been generally reluctant to treat the attacks as race-hate crimes, portraying them instead as acts of hooliganism.
The birth rate exceeded the death rate in Russia last year for the first time in a very long time.
The Russians are scum. They are NOT friends of the US. Worthless group of people, except for the literature.
Yes, but is that ethnic Russians? The birthrate in France is up, too, but how much of that is owing to Muslims?
I have heard that Muslims are now almost a majority in the Russian military, and that at some point not too long from now they will be a majority.
Are you quoting Hitler?
Russia is an eternal enemy of the United States, and of civilization in general.
I was deployed to Uzbekistan 2003-04. Older Uzbeks told me how Russians regarded them and other Central Asians as inferior. I told them my 1985 thesis on ethnic prejudice in the Soviet Army taught me the word `chernozhopii’ (”black asses”, applied to Uzbeks); how tens of thousands of Uzbeks were killed in the 1916 Karshi draft riots (just down the road from the U.S. base, a place I never dreamed I’d see twenty years later). This made me something of a Marco Polo to them.
Amazingly, Uzbeks still regard Russian culture as their window on the west (!).
Meanwhile, let’s not talk about Russian attitudes toward the Jews. The latest outbreaks in Russia against minorities could be based on the fearful violence of the Chechens and their role in the 2004 Beslan horror. I’m not blaming the Russians for anything; as a people they have survived odds that would have most of us Americans shaking in helpless fear.
But I think the phenomenon of Russian neo-fascism needs to be carefully explored. They still have all those rockets.
However, I think that what is overlooked is that even today, religion is secondary in Russia. Russians will say they are "Orthodox", but this is more an affinity to culture, rather than religion. That may change, but it is the reality today. A Tatar, for example, may be Muslim, but will usually identify strongly with being "Russian".
This is not dissimilar to the past. Ukrainians within the Russian Empire considered themselves citizens of the Russian Empire. And how about the millions of Germans? Or the Scots who landed in Russia after the Battle of Culloden (Russia's most famous poet had a Scots surname). Or the Irish? (where do you think the name "Korbut" comes from?
Molotov, by the way, who negotiated the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, never wanted to negotiate with the Germans; He didn't trust them, and told Stalin so.
I need to get the kids to soccer, so I'm off now, but I'll get back to you. The phenomenom you describe is not unique to Russians in the FSU.
Who would have ever imagined blacks (... should they be called African-Russians?) would be serving in the Russian Army:
I am an ethnic Ukrainian (from the diaspora, with roots in Western Ukraine). My husband travelled throughout the USSR before so called perestroika, including Uzbekistan. He would tell you that the Soviets tried to delete nationalism because "the working class doesn't need a nationality". This was the reason for the attempt to create a homo sovieticus, a new man, whose roots began in 1917. The funniest thing is that now, the most ardent nationalists were the most vehement commies, who would sell their mother for a kopeck.
I don't know if I posted it on this thread or another, but I believe one of the reasons for these strong nationalist views is the attempt to wipe this out and create a "Soviet" culture.
As for anti Semitism, up until the 1960's, almost all the leading posts in the party were held by Jews. When Jews earned the right to emigrate, they did face discrimination.
Uncle Joe was not a Russian. He was a Georgian. Most of the soldiers and nomenclatura in the CP were not ethnic Russian.
THE single largest group of victims of the Soviets were Russians. The authoritative “Black Book of Communism” estimates the total at 80 to 100 million dead, greater than that caused by all other twentieth century tyrannies combined. Most of these victims were Russians.
That's when? Please, don't make me laugh!
