On October 23, the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova together with Head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov met with students of the Kerch Polytechnic College and expressed condolences to the relatives and friends of the victims of the tragedy. The college has opened its doors to students for the first time since October 17.

The students expressed a desire to continue studying in the college in order to preserve the memory of fellow students and teachers. They did not lose courage, asked intelligent and adult questions about what had happened to establish the motives of the tragedy and understand what was behind that terrible crime. There were questions about the future work of the college, about the social assistance to the victims and their families.

"So all that matters is that public authorities responsible for safety, prevention and youth work reach conclusions. It is important to learn lessons from this terrible tragedy and take all possible measures to prevent this in future. I support the initiative of the authorities of the Republic of Crimea to entrust school security to armed officers of Rosgvardia — professionals who can protect people if necessary," the High Commissioner said.

Tatiana Moskalkova also noted tremendous support provided to the victims by the authorities of the Republic of Crimea and the Russian Federation. According to the federal ombudswoman, the families receive everything they need, monetary payments. The state covered all the expenses, medical and moral psychological assistance is provided by the best specialists and doctors in Russia.

"Today it is very important to get objective information from students, direct participants in the tragic events, about what had happened, to dispel all doubts and find answers to all matters of concern. I propose to establish hotlines in the agencies conducting the investigation of the tragedy," the High Commissioner stressed.
