    On October 17, 18-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov perpetrated shooting and bombing attack on the Kerch polytechnic college, where he was a fourth-year student. According to the latest data, 20 people, including 15 students and five college staff members, were killed and more than 50 were injured.

    The attacker committed suicide in a library afterward, and his motives still remain unclear.
