Law enforcement agencies in St. Petersburg detained a 22-year-old migrant who started shooting during an online broadcast. This was announced on Thursday, April 29, at the press service of the regional department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
During the investigation, it was established that the incident took place several months ago in a hookah bar on Moskovsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg. During the video broadcast, the young man had a conflict in his correspondence with one of the viewers. Threatening to use violence, the streamer fired a flare gun in front of the camera several times.
Video footage of the incident spread on the Internet, causing outrage among Internet users. The police identified the young man who had shot, who turned out to be a migrant named Chomichon, who works in St. Petersburg as a taxi driver. It turned out that the detainee was in the city with violations of the norms of migration legislation.
“In the near future, the materials will be submitted to the court, where the issue of the expulsion of the young man from the Russian Federation will be resolved. A procedural check is being carried out on the fact of the shooting trick, ”the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs said in a statement posted on the agency’s Instagram account.
In October last year, it became known about another incident that occurred during an online broadcast. Blogger Andrei Burim (Mellstroy), being in the Moscow City apartment and broadcasting live on YouTube, deliberately grabbed the blogger and model Alena Efremova by the neck, then hit her head several times on the table surface, and then pushed her hard, after which she fell to the floor. It was reported that the blogger will go on trial for beating a girl on stream.
The first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Education and Science Gennady Onishchenko called for amendments to the legislation to regulate the dangerous activities of bloggers.
Also, Anton Orlov, director of the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Politics, proposed to introduce criminal punishment for broadcasting streams demonstrating violence on the Web. According to him, now there is no article providing for criminal liability for broadcasting trash streams, although there are several articles in the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation that are indirectly related to this topic.
