“I took revenge against those who spilled blood. Putin spilled blood, planes carried out bombings. Why are Muslims being killed? They also want to live.”
Just days after a nanny beheaded a four-year-old girl in her care and brandished it outside a Moscow metro station a video has emerged of her revealing that she did it to avenge Muslims killed in the Kremlin’s campaign of air strikes in Syria.
38-year-old Gulchekhra Bobokulova from Uzbekistan was detained on Monday, after she was caught waving the child’s severed head outside a Moscow metro station.
The nanny gave her first detailed explanation of the horrific beheading in a video posted online and shared by many bloggers and sites.
In it she is being asked questions by an un-named person off camera.
Gulchekhra Bobokulova says that she did it to avenge Russian President Vladimir Putin, who announced in September that Russia would launch air strikes “against terrorist groups” in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad.
“I took revenge against those who spilled blood,” Bobokulova told an off-camera interviewer.
