Many people still believe that the rapist did not receive sufficient punishment for the crime he committed against two underage girls. The new verdict of the Ryazan court also seemed too lenient for the country.
Ksenia Sobchak’s interview with Viktor Mokhov significantly sharpened the attention of Internet users to the questions that arose in many as soon as the criminal was released. And this is understandable: the maniac from the news reports and the person talking to the TV presenter turned out to be different personalities. The heartlessness with which he recalled his atrocities shocked even the most staunch spectators – thousands of people demanded to reconsider the court decision and isolate Mokhov again.
Someone turned to international law and asked how many years of punishment are usually given to maniacs in such cases. Someone turned out to be even more active and even launched a whole movement on the Web, demanding additional punishment.
The country was just buzzing: how did it happen that a monster from Skopin “on his way home” stops by in Moscow and gives interviews? A huge wave of indignation was caused by Mokhov’s intention to “deal with” one of his victims, Elena Samokhina. He threw this careless, and maybe, on the contrary, planned phrase, as if by chance, during an interview with Sobchak. From that moment on, thinking that the criminal should be protected from society sounded like a massive demand.
But according to the law, Mokhov was not supposed to appear in Moscow. Released after nearly 17 years in prison, he was obliged to remain under police surveillance for another six years. At this time, he has no right to travel outside Skopin, Ryazan region without permission, attend mass events and leave the house after 22:00. We doubt that his visit to the capital, in which Mokhov himself confessed, was sanctioned.
Supervision has been violated – that’s a fact. And Mokhov will indeed be punished for him under Article 19.24 Part 1 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation, which regulates “non-compliance with administrative restrictions and failure to fulfill obligations established during administrative supervision.” The punishment involves a fine from one thousand to one and a half thousand rubles or administrative arrest for up to 15 days.
Recently, the second victim of Mokhov, Ekaterina Martynova, turned to the Investigative Committee with a request to protect her from a maniac. The fact is that he does not hide his intention to meet with his former prisoner and “have a heart-to-heart talk.” The girl, naturally, is afraid of such an outcome of events and asks for intercession. And not only she – the inhabitants of Skopin planned to write a letter to the city administration that they would move Mokhov away from the city.
