Wounded airlifted to Russian hospitals in wake of deadly Crimean shooting

The attack drew parallels to the 1999 Columbine High School massacre in the United States in which 12 pupils and a teacher were killed - with some saying the shooter used it as inspiration. "Eight ambulance crews are working at the site and air medical services are involved", the Crimean Ministry of Health said in a statement.

Russia's Investigative Committee said the attack was carried out by 18-year-old student Vladislav Roslyakov. More than 40 others were injured in the attack.

The suspect was identified as 18-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov, a fourth-year student at the school, according to a spokeswoman for Russia's Investigative Committee.

Numerous victims from Wednesday's attacks were teenage students who suffered shrapnel and bullet wounds.

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said four military planes were ready to evacuate casualties for medical treatment and that space in military hospitals was available for the victims.

The missing data could frustrate investigators trying to determine why Roslyakov opened fire at the school in the city of Kerch on Wednesday before killing himself.

At a forum in Sochi, President Vladimir Putin told an audience that the Kerch shooting was the "result of globalization".

He promised that the government will do everything necessary to help those wounded.

Attacks by disaffected teenagers at schools and colleges have hit the headlines recently in Russian Federation.

Taisiya Roslyakova, the grandmother of the young man said to have carried out the attack, told the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily on October 18 that her grandson was a kind boy who always helped her with chores, unlike his father.

"The suspected attacker shot himself".

Security has been stepped up in the city of 150,000, which sits in the far east of Crimea and is where a recently-opened bridge links the Russian mainland to its new territory.

According to the Russian media, this would amount to 39.000 rubles (519 euros), of which almost 15,000 to buy its license to carry firearms.

The Investigative Committee said it was still working to establish the motive for the attack that recalled similar shooting sprees carried out by students in USA schools.

Russian Federation has opened a probe into a terrorist attack. He didn't name the man, saying only that he was a local resident.

In Crimea, officials said they would review security measures at schools.

"This is a bad tragedy for Kerch, for such a small city", said Galina Pesklyonova, 62. "They say it was a mass shooting but I don't believe it", said Sergei Vagin, holding two red roses to lay at a memorial ceremony in the city on Friday. He did not elaborate.

"I saw it all - the blood, the corpses", he said. Twenty people died in the attack and 50 more were taken to hospitals with injuries. Hundreds of others were wounded.

Russian Federation annexed the peninsula in March 2014, after a referendum in which the population of Crimea chose to become part of Russian Federation.
