SPbU professor killed and dismembered his student

On the morning of Saturday, November 9, 2019, a 63-year-old Oleg Sokolov was detained by a Russian historian, specialist in military history of France, candidate of historical sciences, associate professor, member of the scientific council of the Russian Military Historical Society, lecturer at St. Petersburg State University (SPbU) on suspicion of killing and dismembering a girl. He came across by accident when he was trying while intoxicated to get rid of the body part of his former student in the Moika River, with whom he studied the history of France and cohabited.

During interrogation, Sokolov confessed that on November 7, 2019 he killed 24-year-old Anastasia Yeshchenko, who came to the “northern capital” to study from the village of Starovelichkovskaya in the Krasnodar Territory, from small-caliber weapons due to jealousy during a quarrel. He shot the girl and hid her body in the apartment (house number 82 on Moika embankment) and began to plan how to get rid of the body. On November 8, 2019, Sokolov received guests, but none of them noticed anything.

Sokolov acquired a saw and decided to dismember the corpse in order to carry it in parts. Carry was not far, the river is opposite the house. In order not to lose consciousness in the process of dismembering the body, he drank a lot. He just fell into the hands of the police due to his intoxication when he stumbled and fell into the river. As a result, the police found in his backpack a murder weapon and two female hands. The dismembered corpse of the girl was discovered in Sokolov’s apartment, and Sokolov himself was taken to a hospital with hypothermia.

SPbU professor killed and dismembered his student

SPbU employees are in a state of shock due to information about their colleague. The Dean of the Faculty of History, St. Petersburg State University, Abdullah Daudov expressed his condolences to the relatives and friends of the murdered girl.

Sokolov is an excellent teacher, a good scientist, historian. Students loved him. He is a Knight of the Legion of Honor - the highest award of France. Sokolov is a well-deserved man. Therefore we are all in shock

- added Daudov.

It is necessary to remind SPbU employees and readers that in the spring of 2018 an official decision of the ethics commission was published on the university website regarding the beating of students at Oleg Sokolov's lecture.

Recognize that Associate Professor O. V. Sokolov, as a lecturer, violated the ethical standards of relations with students and, thereby, damaged the image of the Institute of History and St. Petersburg State University as a whole

- the message said.

Why Daudov “forgot” about this resonant incident, which happened just 1,5 years ago, we do not know.

    Where, perhaps, the previous professorial concubines will also "get wet" in the Moika ?! Why such an amazing murderous skill and cold-blooded mega-cynical pragmatism in hiding a corpse and getting rid of it ?!
    Would it be retrospective to check the scientist historian and his closest friends-colleagues (not in a "hunted" perverted gang ?!) for pedlike "disappearances" of students and staff (of both sexes!) Of St. Petersburg State University and its branches ?!
    What kind of "small-caliber weapon" did the villain have "at hand" for such a "jealous case" - a rifle, a pistol, or some disguised object adapted for a "small-caliber", this "gentleman" is legally armed with crime ?!
    After all, “in a state of passion”, for example, with a small-bore rifle, you’re not so fast and turn around until you get it out of the obligatory weapon safe and prepare it for a shot (unless, of course, it’s taken out and loaded in advance ?!) - already in “premeditated murder” "he will have time to retrain, and the victim can dashingly suspect from somewhere a jealously enraged" daddy "who has suddenly run out and clanking with iron - to run away or resist, if she is still in memory and is not immobilized ?!

    The farmer girl, the unfortunate victim of a wild mesalliance, of course, It’s a pity - this is a Bitter Loss, not only for her and her loved ones, but for all of us, her compatriots !!!
    Apparently, the young beauty did not think, trusting, that her overdressed darling, a young old man - "God's dandelion", would turn out to be such a jealous, malicious murderer ?!
    And the dear guests didn’t they ask the murderer-drunkards: "Where is this" passion "of yours, why does the young hostess not welcome guests, does not celebrate with all of us ?!" Like, "to the young parents for the holidays, eh, she drove away, from an elderly benefactor in need of constant care" ?! request
    "Along the way," if the dismemberment (along with irrefutable evidence behind his back, and not just "next to them"!) Hadn't fallen into the water, he would have easily "got rid of" negative - Surely it would have gotten away with it, "a priori infallible, well-learned knight of the French Order of the Legion of Honor", this is a calculated murderous atrocity, they say, student Nastya "disappeared, but I don't know anything and I don't know where" - calmly and then would I drink (without having a snack?), remembering the "tickling details" of mockery of the corpse and sorting out "memorabilia" and "honorary regalia", daily walking along "that" Moika embankment ?!

    It’s bad that another of our compatriots is a young beautiful woman who could live and enjoy life, delight her parents and friends, and make her husband happy, give birth and raise children, was meanly killed by her distraught roommate (who also sadistically mocked her corpse (or still alive?), dismembering and gutting the remains)!
    But it is good that this villain was caught "hot" and exposed! But whether he will be punished "according to his deserts", already so "well-deserved" is another big question, looking at the "positive characteristics from work" ??!
    After all, it has repeatedly happened (and not only in Orwell's "Animal Farm"!) That, before the Law, it was as if "all are equal", but there are those who are "more equal" ?! request

    You can probably "beat" some ignoramuses three times a day, and it still won't add to their intelligence ...!
    By the way, "beating" is quite a judicial term, for which it is possible to attract, since it requires proof ...
    Which, of course, does not in any way justify the jealous professor! ...
    Condolences to the girl’s parents, although they are unlikely to ease their grief ...

    The professor shot ... And how many of these "students" will break into power later, how much of this genetic garbage is already in power !?
    And yes, what kind of professor is this if he studies only French military history until he is very old !?
    And why is it taught to students !?
    Well, the girl is sorry, of course, she could just be a decent girl and just live, live, and live (((Sorry for parents, very sorry (((((

    Well now, professor, get ready - such "lectures on sexuality education" are waiting for you that just hold on or hold with both hands at once, it's true, if you get to the end of the stage, or you might not get there - they will strangle you immediately after quarantine !!!

      I don’t think so. In MLS is very boring. Such a person will entertain all thieves with stories that are really interesting.

    A nightmare story. I was amazed to see the headlines in all the news. Sokolov’s video lectures on history were watched with great interest, a true expert on the Napoleonic era.
    It is amazing how such a person could go into the dismemberment. It would be clear if the murder happened on a domestic basis, out of jealousy, and he himself called the police and surrendered. Or shot himself, as he supposedly intended.
    But shredding the girl’s body and throwing it to pieces ... it just doesn’t fit in my head. The second day I go nuts from the details ... sad

      One does not seem to interfere with the other at all, and he had problems with his head before.

        A selection of lectures by Sokolov:


        The impression of an inadequate person does not produce.
        Perhaps the catalyst was the story of a scammer from the story of Ponasenkov, who stole part of his scientific work from him, and then accused him of plagiarism.

        I emphasize that I do not condone Sokolov. I’m just trying to understand how such a well-deserved person could do such that not every trash horror movie you will see.
        In general, tin ... what

          In general, I am interested in history, and listen to such things with great pleasure. But then it appears from time to time on the network that he already had something like that with the girls, then allegedly after the murder he wanted to shoot himself at the Peter and Paul Fortress in a Napoleon costume, etc. I'm afraid "there is no smoke without fire." Well, what was left for him to do in particular: affect, alcohol, frightened of the consequences, obvious mental problems - well, and a dismemberment as a result. Well, so, all this is very sad, the man got confused, it seems, and his head began to fail. Girls, this is certainly good, but, probably, it is not necessary at this age to try to prolong youth in such ways.

            I can not say anything about his previous adventures. Maybe.
            Sokolov previously impressed me as a person who was very deeply immersed in material, enthusiastic and emotional. He is the founder of the entire reconstruction movement in Russia.
            Perhaps there were some "slides" before, who does not have skeletons in the closet? But he himself crossed out his life (and he killed not only his own, unfortunate girl ...). and thereby dealt a reputational blow to his business and the people who are publicly associated with it ... this is very, very sad.

              And just such people, deeply immersed in some narrow topic and living in their own kind of world, this sometimes happens. And everywhere they write, such statements were already made to him, the leadership was even told that they had not fired him before. Well, in fact it always happens with us.

    We live in an atmosphere of hypocrisy and lies emanating from the authorities, and repeatedly strengthened media. This poison kills everything bright in people.
