The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed the head of the Investigative Committee of Russia in the Chelyabinsk region Reshetnikov P.G. to report on the verification of the circumstances of abuse of an elderly woman.
It was reported that two local residents show an elderly woman suffering from dementia in the course of daily live streams on the Internet. During the streams, they humiliate the elderly person and make fun of her condition. They receive donations from the Internet audience for the demonstration of such actions.
The Chelyabinsk Regional Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia organized a procedural check on this fact. In the course of the verification activities, investigators will determine whether the actions of these individuals have elements of a crime under Article 117 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (torture).
