CHITA, January 24 (RIA Novosti) – A 34-year-old East Siberian has been charged with cutting up and roasting parts of his baby niece in an oven, police said on Friday.
Police said the man, who has just two fingers, killed the two-year-old girl after a drinking session with the child’s mother – his sister – in a village in the Borzinsky district of Russia’s Transbaikal region.
The child was killed while the mother was briefly visiting neighbors, police said. When she returned, she was unable to locate her child, who was subsequently discovered dead in the oven.
Body parts believed to have belonged to the child were also discovered in the kitchen.
Police said the suspect - who an officer described as “indifferent” to goings-on before and after his arrest - later said that the girl had died after he pushed her and she struck her head.
He then placed her dead body in the stove to attempt to cover up the crime, police said.

While it is clear that Russia still lacks a full-fledged multiparty system, the fact is that such systems are in crisis elsewhere in the world. Traditional political parties are growing increasingly inadequate and outmoded. Their time has passed.
