I have to admit defeat here, since the story is the only one to describe Yatzenko's death in detail. The Supreme Court of Ukraine has referred the case back to the Dnepropetrovsk regional court of appeal. The photo above shows Suprunyuck and Sayenko posing for the camera, Hanzha is taking the photo. Only two suspects appear to be present in the video, with one always behind the camera. A meat cleaver was also used in the attack.
The men picked up the bag, used the clothes to clean the hammer, and threw the bag out. All three lawyers were originally court-appointed, but after the initial hearings Viktor Sayenko requested to be represented by his father instead of his previous lawyer, who had apparently graduated from law school only two months earlier. The attack lasts over four minutes, during which the victim lapses in and out of consciousness. This is a real video of a man being gruesomely killed, filmed using a cellphone hence the potato quality by Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs, a group of your Ukrainian teen boys who brutally murdered 21 people with a hammer and a screwdriver. The article will probably need a full section about the Chilean documentary, and it would be helpful if someone fluent in Spanish could produce a transcript. Ukraine has no capital punishment since February 2000 after the Constitutional Court ruled the death penalty unconstitutional in December 1999.
Writing a statement of personal feelings, i. It was 1 hour and 25 minutes long, and was notable for including photo and video material from the case that had never been shown publicly before. On the night of July 6, three more people were murdered in Dnipropetrovsk. He was beginning to regain his voice by the time of the murder. It was also reported that Igor Sayenko was considering setting up a website about the case. Better late than never, though, as from what I have seen so far, the documentary has numerous photos and video clips from the case that have never been seen before.
Igor Sayenko became the most prominent figure on the defense side, giving numerous interviews and taking a leading role in the court proceedings. Local authorities, including deputy interior minister Nikolay Kupyanskiy, initially referred to the supposed influence of the suspects' families, but later denied the assessment, claiming that all three suspects came from poor families. Speaking at a televised press conference, Vladimir Suprunyuck cited irregularities during the investigation, and said that the case against his son was false. As it is, we are left with rather too much to extract this information. The group would hunt for animals, kill them and even hang them to die.
The investigation was initially kept secret. The suspects' mobile phones and personal computers contained multiple video recordings of the murders. However, Viktor Sayenko was represented in court by his father Igor Sayenko, a lawyer. But there are people, officers in the Militsiya, who on July 19, 2007 received reports that those three were arrested. Elena Shram, a 28-year-old night guard, was then murdered around the corner on Kosiora Street. On July 25, 2007, with Ekaterina Ilchenko and Roman Tatarevich, Sayenko and Suprunyuk initiated their killing spree, randomly picking pedestrians and then bludgeoning them with blunt objects, such as hammers and steel construction bars, and recording some of the murders.
The treatment left him unable to speak for some time, but Yatzenko was unhappy with being unable to work and continued to find odd jobs around the village. The parents of Igor Suprunyuck and Viktor Sayenko repeated their belief in the innocence of their sons. Do you have a bigger excerpt? The lawyers for Suprunyuck and Sayenko announced their intention to appeal, saying that the authenticity of the photographic and video evidence was not established beyond reasonable doubt. All three immediately made confessions, though Suprunyuk would go on to withdraw his. From the article's point of view, it is important to note that more than one murder video is known to exist, even though it is the Yatzenko video that has received all the media attention because of the Internet leak. The photographs of Suprunyuck and Sayenko posing with Yatzenko don't show this particular wounding on the corpse, which suggests it was inflicted outside of the time-frame of the original 8-minute clip. The three men were charged with involvement in 29 separate incidents, including 21 murders and eight more attacks where victims survived.
I think until we get a proper translation of the documentary we're still in the dark about much of this. The request was granted, which significantly delayed the proceedings as Sayenko's father familiarized himself with the evidence. Just to be clear, I wasn't implying that a gun was ever used in the attacks, but I thought that if the story about the alleged co-conspirator selling a gun to one of the accused in some way gives the conspiracy slant more weight then these photographs perhaps corroborate that claim. The Kozlov angle was used by the defence to support the conspiracy version of events, but there is not much more to say than what is already known. Only two suspects appear to be present in the video, with one always behind the camera. Local media reported that the killers had a plan to get rich from the murder videos that they recorded.
The photographic and video evidence was shown in court on October 29, 2008, as part of a larger presentation of over 300 photographs and two videos. Hanzha's attorneys based their defense on the fact that he never participated in the murder spree, and was involved only with a single incident four months before it began, in which two men were robbed in the nearby town of. This is truly a one of a kind collectors item for anyone interested in the macabre world of true crime, prison art or the strange world of murderabelia. The court agreed with the prosecution that the video was genuine, that it showed Igor Suprunyuck attacking the victim, and that Viktor Sayenko was the man behind the camera. They discuss the murder calmly, expressing mild surprise that the victim was still breathing after a screwdriver was plunged into his exposed brain. Male, females and children were brutally in a random acts of violence. The court found that all three participated together in some of the robberies and animal cruelty, but the hammer attacks were the work of Suprunyuck and Saenko only; Hanzha was not involved here.
