Russian Federation terror attack: Explosion at college kills 13 and injures 50

School attacks in Russian Federation are relatively rare, although the country did suffer a notorious school massacre at Beslan in 2004, in which more than 300 people were killed, including 186 children.

On Wednesday, 18-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov opened fire on his technical college in the city of Kerch before killing himself.

Kerch's deputy mayor, Dilyaver Melgaziyev, said on October 18 that all the victims had been identified, adding that 15 of them were students, and six of them were younger than 18, while the other five victims were college employees.

The attack was first reported as an explosion, with authorities saying an "unidentified explosive device" had gone off and classifying the incident as an act of terror.

Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, has said that Wednesday's mass school shooting in Crimea was the result of "globalisation" and the continuation of an American trend.

The next day, Russia's National Guard announced that it would be providing additional security at all schools and kindergartens in Kerch.

There has been some discussion about the significance of the attack taking place in Crimea, which Russian Federation illegally annexed from Ukraine in 2014 and which has been one of the reasons for the ongoing conflict between the two countries.

"Vladislav was always telling me about his frequent fights with people around him", she said, adding that he "didn't want to live" because of it.

An armed 18-year-old student in the Black Sea port city of Kerch killed 20 people, majority fellow pupils, and wounded dozens at his college on Wednesday, law enforcement officials said.

As of publication, the death toll stands at 20, while at least 50 others were injured. They also beefed up security at a new 19-kilometer (11.8-mile) bridge that links the peninsula with Russian Federation that opened earlier this year.

It was not clear what the explosion was, if the attacker detonated it, or how many many people it wounded.

Facing a crowd of angry parents, some of whom still did not know where their children were, Aksyonov said authorities were seeking to establish the gunman's motives: "What pushed this non-person to do this, I don't know".
