Crimea attack: Russians blame Western culture

(CNN)As Russians struggle to come to terms with a horrific US-style school shooting in Crimea, which has left at least 20 people dead and dozens injured, Kremlin-controlled media are blaming the “corrupting influence” of the West for inspiring the attack.

State television has broadcast shocking images of the rampage, much of it recorded by teenage college students trying to flee the suspected lone gunman, named as 18-year old Vladislav Roslyakov, as he stalked the corridors shooting classmates.
Broadcaster RT, funded by the Kremlin, has spoken of the “shocking resemblance” between the Kerch attack and the 1999 Columbine High School shooting in the United States.
