According to the channel “112”, at the time of the abduction, she was playing near the House of Culture, where her mother worked. After some time, two unknown persons approached the child, picked him up and carried him away in an unknown direction.
Later, “112” published footage showing the suspects walking along the road. One of them carries the child in his arms, the other moves next to him.

On October 16, a resident of Vologda met an unfamiliar 9-year-old girl on the street, lured her into her apartment and brutally killed her there. The accused was detained in Karelia and brought in for interrogation.
During interrogation, 40-year-old Ulyana Lanskaya confessed to the crime, stating that she had killed the child “on the basis of hostile relations that had arisen.” She was assigned to conduct a forensic psychiatric examination to establish the degree of sanity at the time of the murder.
During the search for the killer, the Investigative Committee (IC) opened two criminal cases at once – on the fact of negligence of employees of the prevention system and under Article 125 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Leaving in danger”) against the girl's mother, who did not pay attention to the child.
