The last day of February, Monday 29th, has left Moscow residents feeling shocked and terrorized.
A 38-year-old woman from Uzbekistan, identified from the Russian media as Gyulchekhra Bobokulova, beheaded a three or four-year-old child. Apparently she had been taking care of the child and, after its parents left the apartment with their older child, Bobokulova murdered the infant and set the home on fire.
After the nanny committed this sickening act, eyewitnesses say that she walked through the streets on Moscow with the infant’s bloodied head in her hand, shouting “Allahu Akhbar” and “I am a terrorist, I am your death.”
According to Life News, Russian tabloid news site, a policeman intercepted her at Oktyabrskoye Polye metro station and asked her for documents, after which she took out the head and screamed that she would blow herself up.
Life News also informed that the victim of this atrocious murder is a girl named Nastya.
One of the witnesses is Russian journalist Polina Nikolskaya, who said that she had seen the woman dressed in black hijab carrying around a bloodied head.
Russia Today reports that Nastya's parents learned the news after police informed her that their apartment has been set on fire, and that the child’s burned body has been found in the wreckage. The mother has been taken to hospital after collapsing in shock.
Beheaded child in Moscow - warning of terrorist attacks
After the terrorist attacks in Paris in on November 13th, Russia has been threatened with becoming the new priority victim of #Terrorism. As a response to this, the same month, President Vladimir Putin suspended flights of Russian airplanes, emphasizing the fact that they still have to work on the investigation of the MetroJet Flight 9268 crash that happened the previous month.
Whether these threats were forgotten, or people just tried to live freely and with lack of fear, no one knows. But it did not take long for the menacing rhetoric to become reality.
Russia is constantly in danger because of Chechnya and Dagestan, and although the #Government has banned more than 15 terrorist groups, the attacks haven't stopped. According to the Investigative Committee of Russia, in 2013 more than 600 terrorist offences were recorded, 31 of them actual attacks.
