The child's mother reported the 'beating' by 38 year old Omsk teacher Svetlana Savelyeva. She claimed the boy was beating his classmates so she decided to 'teach him a lesson'.

School director Olga Oleksina said: 'After the incident, Nikita complained his classroom teacher and they both came to me. The boy needed more psychological than medical help. He was crying. I asked Nikita, who left these traces on his body. The boy said that Svetlana (his teacher).

'I went to talk to her. The teacher looked absolutely calm. I did not see some excitement in her behaviour or feelings of shame. She was very confident. She said that she only slapped him, because she thought he was hurting other children with the skipping rope.' She claimed to the school director that she had 'acted correctly' in whipping the child.

'She still believes that acted correctly,' said Mrs Oleksina, but 'violence is not an option'. 

She said the teacher was fired 'as soon as she teacher confessed that she hit him'. She 'packed up and left the school'. Mrs Oleksina said that previously there had 'never been any problems with her'.
