    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on claims of a nanny suspected of beheading a child in Moscow in revenge for Russian President Vladimir Putin's "Syria bombings."

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The nanny accused of brutally killing a little girl in Moscow is insane, therefore, her words and explanations of what happened should be treated accordingly, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    On Monday, the nanny in question allegedly beheaded a four-year-old girl, set the apartment on fire, and later took the child’s head to a nearby subway station, where she wielded it around, threatening passers-by. The suspect, Gyulchehra Bobokulova, a citizen of Uzbekistan who was born in 1978, raised no objection to her arrest citing Allah's will as the crime's motive. However, investigators believe that she was incited by a third person.

    "It seems clear to me, though I could be mistaken at this point, I'm not an expert or a judge, but it is obvious that the woman is clearly unstable. It seems to me that one needs to treat the words of such an unstable woman accordingly," Peskov told reporters, commenting on Bobokulova's statement that she acted according to Allah’s will, in revenge for Russian President Vladimir Putin's "Syria bombings."

    It would be absolutely wrong to draw any conclusions as yet as the investigation is underway, he stressed.

    Russian Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin confirmed that the nanny suspected of a child's murder has schizophrenia.

    "The motive of a person with the diagnosis of "schizophrenia" at the time of a crime does not usually coincide with the explanation that he gives after the crime."
