Deputy of the Legislative Assembly of the Kamchatka Territory from United Russia Igor Redkin confessed to the murder: he said that he accidentally shot a man when he was trying to drive a bear out of the village.

According to the deputy, he learned that a bear was wandering at the dump, from which local residents could suffer.

“I took a weapon and decided to scare him away. At dusk he shot at the bear. Later, I learned that at about the same time a local resident was wounded in the area of the shooting and died in the hospital. Yesterday I made a decision for myself and am ready to bear the punishment, which will be determined by the court", - quotes the words of the deputy "Novaya Gazeta".

According to the Investigative Committee, the victim of the shooting was a 30-year-old local resident, who received a gunshot wound on August 2 at a landfill near the village of Ozernovsky, Ust-Bolsheretsky District. The victim died in hospital. A criminal case was opened in the UK on the fact of the murder.

Redkin, one of the 20 richest civil servants according to Forbes, indicated an official income for three years in excess of 1.5 billion rubles. Redkin owns a network of fishing and aviation enterprises, including Vityaz-Avto and Vityaz-Aero. After the incident, the deputy promised to suspend his membership in United Russia and withdraw his candidacy from the elections.

Earlier it was reported that during the coronavirus in a number of regions of the country, the population of wild animals grew sharply, which began to fearlessly enter settlements, tearing up graves in cemeteries, attacking people and domestic dogs. After incidents with the entry of bears into schools, armed patrols began to be created on the streets of a number of cities to protect residents from the invasion of wild animals. In Siberia, this summer, bears tore to pieces several tourists. Hunting tours were allowed in Kamchatka to regulate the bear population. At the same time, the issuance of permits for the production of Red Data Book animals, such as the Himalayan bear, angered many Russians.
