Moscow Lawyer Charged with Mass Murder

Dmitry Vinagradov, a Moscow lawyer who shot and killed six people and has been dubbed the Russian Breivik, was indicted Monday according to a statement by Russia's Investigative Committee. Vinogradov used two semiautomatic shotguns to shoot his colleagues while at their desks in November 2012. Five died in the attack, and the sixth died afterwards in hospital. Before the shooting, Vinogradov posted a manifesto on his social network page, detailing his disgust with society and comparing humanity to cancer. Vinogradov has been charged under several articles of the Criminal Code, including murder, attempted murder, and supporting extremism.
