Boris Kondrashin, who has been working as a therapist at a local city hospital, was arrested in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk on 1 February. The Investigation Committee said that he got the job by using false documents, including a fake medical diploma. During searches of his apartment, the police found a large amount of drugs.
From November 2018 to 14 January 2019, he was listed as a general practitioner and received patients. As soon as the probe established that all the documents were faked, he was fired and the hospital transferred all the information about him to the police.
However, the story has some other, morbid details: a probe was launched after a doctor from a local psychoneurological hospital recognised him, saying that Kondrashin had been a patient treated for schizophrenia. According to media reports, he had been in a psychiatric hospital for more than 10 years, after which he was released under the supervision of a psychotherapist.

Ghoulish Story of Young Cannibal
In 2000, Boris Kondrashin became a defendant in a criminal case while still at school. The 16-year-old boy lived with his father, a psychotherapist and, according to friends, dreamed of working as a doctor. One day, after class, he invited a classmate over: he gave him a tranquillizer and killed him. Kondrashin then performed a ritualistic ceremony: he cut out the heart and an eye and placed them in formalin, and also squeezed blood from the victim and drank it from a specially prepared silver cup.
