In Kemerovo, the Ministry of Internal Affairs recovered 700 thousand rubles in favor of the family of Vera Pekhteleva, who was killed by her boyfriend; police ignored calls about her beating

The Zavodsky District Court of Kemerovo recovered 700 thousand rubles from the Ministry of Internal Affairs in favor of the family of murdered student Vera Pekhteleva. This was reported by the human rights project “Traumpunkt”.

The court awarded the Kemerovo woman’s father and mother 600 thousand rubles, and her uncle – 100 thousand rubles. They demanded significantly larger compensation – 7.5 million rubles.

23-year-old Vera Pekhteleva was killed by her boyfriend Vladislav Kanyus in January 2020. He beat the girl for a long time, including wrapping an iron wire around her neck “to scare her” and “put her to sleep.” The police ignored calls from neighbors and arrived only in the morning after the neighbors broke down the door to the apartment where Pekhteleva was killed.

Kanyusa’s neighbor said that she called 112 seven times, but the attendants either promised to send a squad or scolded her for using obscene language. As a result, five police officers who did not respond in time to calls about screams were given suspended sentences and found guilty of negligence.

Kanyus himself was sentenced in July 2022 to 17 years in a maximum security colony. In the spring of 2023, he was taken from the colony to participate in the war in Ukraine. Pekhteleva’s relatives found out about this when he began publishing photos on social networks wearing camouflage clothes and holding a weapon.

Only six months later, in November 2023, the prosecutor's office confirmed to Pekhteleva's parents that Vladimir Putin had indeed pardoned their daughter's killer by secret decree at the end of April and that he had gone to war. By that time, Kanyus had already returned home.
