A man has been jailed for life for the double murder of two women he killed to avenge his childhood bullies.
Alexey Alexandrov, 35, admitted his “purpose was to kill” after investigators tracked him down following a mass police search.
Russian officers questioned 4,500 people in the case over the shootings, which left Banker Ksenia Soltanova, 29, and Natalia Kuznetsova, 28 dead.
The women had been enjoying a slice of pizza at the time of the killings at Mount Uktus near Yekaterinburg before Alexandrov used night vision to track and shoot them each three times.
He then put on medical grade gloves and dragged the women, who had been fatally wounded, into the long grass.

The married dad-of-one denied any sexual motive but said he killed them to avenge bullying he faced at school and college..
Despite this, the former Russian missile designer admitted he had never met his victims and they had nothing to do with the bullying he faced as a kid.
