Russians have woken up to a sorrowful incidence after an 18-year old student blew himself up in revenge of being bullied by nuns.

According local media reports Vladislav Struzhenkov  entered the premises of the Orthodox gymnasium of the Vvedenskiy Vladychniy convent and blew himself up’, Russia’s Interior Ministry said in a statement.

The attack, which saw Struzhenkov also carrying a machete, took place at 8.24am local time at the Orthodox school linked to a nunnery in the city of Serpukhov, south of Moscow.

Struzhenkov is believed to have planned to carry out the attack during the Orthodox school’s morning prayers, but he set off the explosives outside the prayer hall after he was unable to gain entry.

Reports said that Struzhenkov had previously complained of being ‘bullied by the nuns’ who ran the school while one source said the attack had been ‘aimed at pupils’.

The attacker’s leg was blown off in the blast and police did not immediately permit paramedics to go close to Struzhenkov due to fears of another explosive device.

The teenager died of ‘blood loss’, Russian police sources said.

A-15 year-old student was among at least seven reported as wounded with cuts and shrapnel injuries.

The suspect was reportedly ‘motivated by his hatred of the school teachers and nuns’.

His father Andrey Struzhenkov, 41, said he had believed his son was buying fireworks for New Year.

Prince Harry has filed a British court case demanding that the British government ensure the safety of him and his family on British soil.

Queen Elizabeth II’s grandson and wife Meghan Markle lost their right to security at Scotland Yard after formally leaving the British Royal Family and moving to the US.

A legal representative for Harry and Meghan told The Sun newspaper that the prince and wife have a trip to England planned with their children – two-year-old Archie and seven-month-old Lilibet Diana – but feel exposed and insecure. , therefore asking for the support of the security team they had.

“Prince Harry inherited security risks at birth, for life. He remains sixth in line to the throne, has served twice in Afghanistan and in recent years his family has been the target of documented threats from neo-Nazis and extremists.”

“, defended the representative, adding that “as much as his role in the monarchy has changed, his profile as a member of the Royal Family has not changed. Neither have the threats to him and his family members”.

According to details, Harry believes that the private protection team he has in the US does not have adequate jurisdiction on British soil, nor access to intelligence information and therefore wants the protection of Scotland Yard.

And he is willing to pay the security out of his pocket, but the British Home Office refused the claim, in a decision that Harry seeks to appeal.

Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, announced their resignation in January 2020 and officially left their roles in the British Royal House in April 2020, moving to the US. At that time, public spending on the couple’s security was around £600,000.
