87-year veteran of the Great Patriotic War stabbed a repeat offender who broke in with a knife

87-year veteran of the Great Patriotic War stabbed a repeat offender who broke in with a knifeIn the Zabaykalsky village of Kazanovo, a veteran of World War II killed a robber in self-defense in order to defend himself and extorted money from him. This was reported on the website of the regional investigative management of the Investigative Committee.

"It was previously established that at night 21 in May 2012. 35-year-old previously convicted resident of the village of Kazanovo illegally entered the house to the veteran and began to demand money and valuables, threatening with a knife," says, the words of senior assistant of the Investigative Committee of the RF IC for the Trans-Baikal Territory Yegor Markov.

When the owner refused, there was a fight, during which the veteran stabbed the attacker with a knife in the stomach. After that, the front-line soldier called for help from his neighbors and informed the law-enforcement authorities about the incident. The veteran himself, who is 87 years old, was hospitalized in serious condition with a knife wound to the chest and multiple beatings.

The investigation believes that the veteran killed the man "in the conditions of the necessary defense." "The necessary forensic investigations have been appointed, and other actions are being taken to clarify the details of the incident. A procedural decision will be made based on the results of the audit," the report said.

According to, veteran of the Great Patriotic War Pavel Veretelnikov received 11 awards during the war with Japan, including the Order of the Great Patriotic War, II degree, the medal "For the Victory over Japan" and "For the Liberation of Korea". The veteran put his orders and medals for the last time on 9 May.

A month ago, in April, in the village of Komissarovo of the Kemerovo region, 87, a veteran of the Great Patriotic War, Peter Alexeev, twice fired a gun at his own great-grandson, who tried to enter his house through a window leaf. In this case, the old man took advantage of the award weapons, which was presented to him during the war.

“The old man woke up from the noise and decided that the robbers were crawling into the house. The brave grandfather grabbed a gun and fired point-blank. The young man shouted, and only then the veteran recognized his great-grandson in him,” the law enforcement authorities told the area.

About the young man it is known that earlier he was tried and repeatedly came across the theft from his own great-grandfather's house. A search was conducted in the house of the veteran, during which they seized award weapons with ammunition.

"Investigative bodies of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in the Kemerovo region against the 87-year-old resident of the village of Komissarovo, Kemerovo, a criminal case under the article" Murder ", - said the assistant manager for media relations of the TFR in the Kemerovo region Nadezhda Ananeva.

Due to their old age, they did not begin to arrest the veteran, law enforcement officers took a written undertaking not to leave the place of residence. Alekseev fought in the Pacific Air Defense fleet, he went through the whole war and was awarded the medal "For the victory over Japan."

    This is what kind of cattle you need to be in order to steal from your own great-grandfather, or go to an elderly person and threaten him with a knife. Do not mind such geeks at all. That's right men did. I wish that for them it would all end happily.

      Hi Zhenya, I think everything will be fine with my grandfather, the press has connected. And as for cattle, they look at some who do not need a victory parade — these are the results of liberalism.

        Hi Sasha. I think that it’s not liberals’s results here, but parents, and we only know about 2 cases, and how many old people are killed because of apartments without a twinge of conscience, look around if grandfather with a wand goes into the store before they would let him out of turn, without talking, but Now the young creatures will also begin to be rude about the fact that he puffed himself out on the street (I do not want to say about everyone, but that there are more and more of them).

    Honor and respect to the veteran. He defended his property on his territory, his life from an invading aggressor, which means that weapons are used without warning to prevent armed invasion, stop armed resistance and when life is in real danger. His case should not be in the prosecutor's office, but in the award department. Honor and glory to such old people. Hands off premium weapons. Successful treatment and long life.

The cowardice of such jackals has no boundaries, climb into the house where 90 is a summer old because they know that they will not meet resistance. This time down miscalculated. And each time, like this, a knife in the gnaw at the very hilt so that it would be disgraceful for all urodam!

    If only everything was safe with the health of veterans. Rogues morally fallen people.
    Now about the regulation of such cases. The law should clearly state what the necessary defense is to cause bodily harm or to kill a person who has penetrated into someone else’s premises. This will rule out many controversial situations.

    Although we - former citizens of the USSR, are contemptuously called by some as "scoops" - nevertheless, I believe that the USSR raised generations of some of the best people on earth - the Komsomol and Communists showed an example of behavior and attitude within society!
    Examples of tolerance and nobility and the ability to protect themselves and their loved ones and their homeland. remember the TRP at least!

    And my grandfather is a veteran, too, from "our" Soviet people.

    Judging by a number of press reports on self-defense killings, something is being prepared in terms of a weapons law. They are preparing public opinion, although what to cook, most are for the legalization of weapons.

      If they cook, then why? So that the Russians roll out all nationalities?
