Mozdok woman complains to President Putin about refusals to investigate beating of her brother

A sister of Rostislav Melnichenko, who complained about the beating by a law enforcer and was refused in the institution of a criminal case, recorded a video appeal to the Russian President and asked him to intervene in the situation.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Yulia, a sister of a resident of Mozdok, said that on March 11, 2019, her brother was beaten by a law enforcer and hospitalized with injuries. Rostislav Melnichenko said that a district police inspector who witnessed the incident "did not try to prevent it in any way." Investigators suggested that Rostislav Melnichenko himself attacked the law enforcer, and the latter defended himself.

Yulia Melnichenko recorded a video appeal to Vladimir Putin, in which she complained about the ineffective investigation into the case on the beating of her brother, the "Kavkaz.Realii" reports.

"Our lives are in danger, and justice in the case is impossible without your intervention," Yulia Melnichenko claimed in her appeal to the Russian President.

According to the young woman, on March 11, 2019, the law enforcer beat her brother, "since, while returning home, he failed to give way to the law enforcer's car." "As a result, the law enforcer broke his jaw," Yulia Melnichenko stated.
