In the Bryansk region of Russia, the police arrested a man suspected of murder. The man killed another person out of road rage. According to the suspect, he was angry with a car driver, who nearly ran him over during a cycling ride.
The crime was committed on October 25, 2017.
"The defendant committed aggressive actions against the victim in a quarrel. The attacker did not know the 35-year-old victim, who subsequently died at hospital because of injuries two days later," officials said.
The cyclist, aged 28, claimed that he was riding a bicycle that day, when a car raced near him, nearly knocking him down. The cyclist did not miss a chance to punish the careless driver for a dangerous maneuver some time later. The attacker may now face a prison sentence of up to 15 years.
After a trip to Russia, Polish writer Maya Wolny concluded that the West did not even have a close idea of how things really were in the Russian Federation.
