'That time Barnaul was undoubtedly the most cultural corner of Siberia. I named it Siberian Athens'

Did father Vladislav Ishin kill himself and his family because of rising debts?

By The Siberian Times reporter

Or were they 'murdered by creditors' after failing to pay back loans in economic crisis?

Entrepreneur Vladislav Ishin, 39, his wife Elena, 38, son Nikita, 17, and daughter Yana, 9, were all found dead at the family home in Artyomovsk town, Krasnoyarsk region. The sawmill owner is suspected of shooting his family and then turning the gun on himself. 

But relatives say he would be incapable of killing his beloved wife and children and they suspect he the family was murdered. 

A relative told local channel TVK6 anonymously: 'The door was locked from inside. It was cracked. The first thing we saw was Vlad himself lying face downward next to a gun.

'In one of the rooms were the mother [Elena] and daughter [Yana] shot dead. The mother was shot in the abdomen. In another room Nikita lay across the bed. Probably he was trying to get up. He was shot through the blanket.'

Vladislav's mother Valentina had gone to visit the family after they did not answer calls. She asked neighbours and relatives to help open up the house. Nikita was still alive and died in his grandmother's arms.

It is know that Vladislav was in debt, and facing problems to repay the money he owed. He took loans to support his business, and there were claims that debt collectors had put pressure on him.

But his mother said: 'The collectors did not threat and they never came to him. The bank did not sue him. All the relatives tried to help him pay off loans as they could. I helped him to pay the last payment.

'He borrowed 250,000 ($3,160) roubles from an acquaintance. This man demanded high interest for this money. My son gave him 350,000 roubles ($4,425), but he said that the amount of debt risen by another 550,000 roubles ($6,950).'

Neighbours suspect murder, saying Vladislav was incapable of such a 'cruel' act. The case comes as many people are hit by economic woes as the country battles a slump in oil prices, a falling rouble and sanctions imposed by the West linked to Crimea's return to Russia.
