Imprison Men Who Allegedly Blew Up Cat With Fireworks

Target: Fatuyev Vyacheslav Ivanovich, First Deputy of Ryazan Oblast Administration

Goal: Imprison the three men allegedly responsible for taping a cat’s feet and blowing it up with a firework.

Three yet-unnamed men reportedly captured a cat and taped its feet together before strapping the poor animal to a firework and blowing it up. Not only did they monstrously murder this cat, they also recorded their cruelty. This video has since inspired a movement for harsher animal cruelty laws in Russia. These three men need to first answer for their crimes. They should be the first of many abusers in Russia to be viciously punished for their inhumanity.

While police suspect the video was originally created 11 years ago, a fourth individual discovered the video on the memory of an old computer and submitted it to authorities. It is also unsurprising that these three men, now being held for the murder and filming of this cat, have since accumulated a record of illegal activity.

One was convicted of robbery in 2005 and the others were jailed for nine years in 2008 for aggravated assault. It is also suspected that one has served time for manslaughter. However, because of the video’s age, statue of limitations will likely result in their case being discarded without conviction.

Don’t allow these people to avoid punishment simply by the circumstance of over a decade having passed since their cruel acts. Regardless of the time since they tortured and murdered this animal, they should still face consequences for it. A decade would not excuse a person for murder of another human and it should not excuse the murder of animals. Urge Ryazan officials to hold these men accountable for their depravity.


Dear Fatuyev Ivanovich,

The recent emergence of a video suspected to be over a decade old showing three men murdering a cat has created a stir. Many are calling for harsher, stricter laws in Russia regarding animal cruelty. Indeed, when watching three men tape and blow up an animal, it makes people wonder why they are not being punished.

Why are these men not being convicted of the murder they are responsible for simply because it has been more than two years? A statue of limitations should not apply when life is involved, be it human or animal. No amount of time will make what these men did OK, and they should not be allowed to walk free of it–especially considering their continued record of illegal behavior.

Please, use this situation as a starting point for advancing punishments on animal abusers. Imprison these men as they deserve for murdering this defenseless animal. Don’t allow them to walk free and target others in the future.

    It’s Andrei Chikatilo’s long lost relatives, must be a blessed event to be reunited!! Can’t imagine if someone did this to one of my cats, doubt they’d be alive & committing numerous more crimes.

    Shove an M80 up their rectum and return the favor.


  6. “The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”

  7. Jacquelyn Ferdinand says:

    Who except you has said that one species of animal is no more valuable than another and what does eating meat or not eating meat have to do with punishing those guilty of animal abuse or cruelty? This post is about holding these 3 men accountable for their actions which probably won’t happen due to the statute of limitations and Russia’s poor or non-existent laws. At least this case has brought about a governmental push to put in place and enforce strict codes and laws to protect animals, something Russia has needed for a long time. This poor cat deserves every bit of justice this case can bring her and eating meat or not eating meat won’t have any impact on that whatsoever.

    • Excuse you, Jacquelyn, but Spain, South America, and China are just are brutal even more so towards animals. The fact that these people got arrested at all proves that Russia’s legal system at the very least is doing something – that’s way more than you can say for a ton of countries. In China they wouldn’t have even gotten arrested. If you google this case then you find sad stories all over the world of animals being blown up with firecrackers or torched and no justice there either, including in the U.S. So if you want people to take your dumb ass seriously then get your racist facts sorted out first.

    I hope he will die slow and VERY painfully and I wish him the worst that fucking bastard pos

  9. Que todo él dolor del gato se le devuelva a,estos tres asesinos!!!!

  10. I can’t help it….I just really wish a group of people would round these soulless bastards up and beat the crap out them till they beg for mercy.

  11. If this is an old video, I hope that these pieces of garbage are dead and in Hell by now. If not, they will be someday, sooner rather than later, I hope.

    So much space in Russia. I would know how to use it.
    Cruel POS . Do away with them. Why keep crap like that around.
    ‘they are human beings’ doesn’t cut it any more as an excuse. It’s like cancer overtaking the body. Have to cut sometimes.
