Media report details of Grozny suicide bomber's life

Karina Spiridonova, the alleged suicide bomber, who blew herself up 75 meters from a checkpoint in Grozny, attended a school in a village in the Chelyabinsk Region, was raised in an incomplete family and was fond of pedagogy, some media have stated.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported, with reference to the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), that on November 17, in the Staropromyslovsky District of Grozny, near checkpoint No. 21, a woman committed a self-bombing. Nobody was hurt among law enforcers or civilians.

The alleged suicide bomber, Karina Spiridonova (last name by her husband), was born in 1993 in Adygea, but she studied at a school in one of the villages in the south of the Chelyabinsk Region. There she lived with her mother-teacher and a sister; their mother raised the girls alone, writes the "Ura.ru" News Agency, adding when at school, the girl went in for volleyball and was fond of pedagogy.

In 2016, the girl married and moved to Dagestan, the "Tsargrad" reports.

Let us note here that in the photo in the Russian passport, which she received in November 2016, Karina Spiridonova was photographed in a hijab. However, as noted by social network users, in the photo in the passport for travelling abroad she received in 2017, the girl is already without any headgear, with her hair loose.
