Vladyslav Roslyakov who committed a massacre at Kerch College on October 17 that led to the death of 21 people (including the shooter) might have contacted the Ukrainian neo-Nazis and modeled an attack based on the interface of the popular videogame Doom. Kommersant reported this citing the sources among the investigators.
'During the investigation, it turned out that before the attack, a teenager made a peculiar electronic photocollage at home. Doom and GTA were his favorite PC games and he casted the picture of the corridors and rooms of the college at the background of Doom screenshot,' the news agency said.
It is noted that the proper scheme of the future massacre was saved to the USB device found at Roslyakov's bag. Now the experts check whether the mass murder was committed according to this scheme.
At the same time, the investigation does not rule out that Roslyakov wanted to burn the building of the college after the shooting, as Molotov cocktail was also found at his bag.
'Besides, according to the investigation, Roslyakov could be connected to the 'extremists' in Ukraine with whom he played Doom via LAN; as he spoke with them, he said he was interested in creating bombs,' the Russian news agency noted.
During the search of the internet-contact of the 'Kerch shooter' it was found out that he visited the websites and forums where the admirers of serial murder and the neo-Nazis gathered. As the photo at Telegram he used the photo of maniac Anatoly Onoprienko who killed 52 people in seven years. He called his Twitter account 'Want to die'.
Also, it was established that most often, he googled such things as 'shotgun', 'terror', 'terrorist', 'Saiga', 'sterile, re-equipment', 'ISIS execution'.
Moreover, he actively searched and watched the videos on the internet with different kinds of massacres such as human dismemberment.
Preliminary, Roslyakov considered himself an anarchist and admirer of punk rock music.
Ihor Parasych, the father of one of the classmates of the shooter, said that Roslyakov was interested in the Estonian movie 'The Class' that told about violence at school. He also reminded that in 2017, the shooter dispersed the pepper spray at the college and subverted the education process. He was almost expelled.
Russia's Investigative Committee opened a criminal proceeding due to Crimean blast upon the article on the terrorist action; however, later it was reclassified it to the mass murder.
A crime was committed by an 18-year-old student of the college, later he shot himself.
The so-called Head of Crimea Sergei Aksyonov stated that the Kerch shooter had support in preparing the terrorist attack in the college on October 17.
