Pokhlov’s Widow Raised Her Voice and Called Them “scumbags” And “animals”
Svetlana, Pokhlov’s widow, who was also injured during the incident, raised her voice on Intsgram against what happened. She wrote, “Thanks to this animal, my beloved husband and father of three children is no more! A good, kind-hearted man! Who couldn’t just walk by when a disabled person was being attacked! This man had a walking stick in his hand, he was simply trying to get away from these scumbags. My Pavel came to help him. Wanted to separate them. But Vorogushina – a champion kickboxer, and her friend started to jump in and beat us.Then there was the fatal blow and instant death! Instant! Not one of these scumbags have apologised to me or to his parents. They just decided to make it easier and block me everywhere.”
