Interview With A Russian Serial Killer
Russia's #2 serial killer airs his views, opinions, worries... By Yasha Levine Browse author Email
Page 2 of 2

I have nightmares ... A dog. It lived with me a long time [he lured his victims by asking them to go mourn at his dead dog's grave in Bittsevsky Park with a couple of shots of vodka before smashing their heads in]. She died. It was my fault. I treated it, how to say, not very ... She could have been saved. It was a bad situation ... it left something in my subconscious.

Of course I don't write. Only devki (plural of dyev, Russian slang for "girls") write. Journalists too, I suppose.

First of all, what is a friend? This is not someone who gives you one hundred rubles or lets you stay over for a night ... And secondly, my principle: to the grave, and that's it. Yes, I received more pleasure from killing people whom I knew personally. But I also found a way to get to strangers and that is not easy. Their relatives said that they would never go somewhere with a stranger. But to me they are flying, despite the difference in age. A youngster, Koryagin [one of his victims]... I was leaving the police office and I knew that everywhere was an ambush, but I remained free. Then I spit and got caught.


No, I do not regret it. So much strength and time spent. Repent? I do not repent, this is again a dull formality. It will not change my sentence. Since I was young I dreamed ... Everything was different back then. And it all turned out the way I wanted it to. I knew that they had me nailed when they started pressing me about 12 victims, but then they all were surprised that I actually killed 60. I watched a show about me on TV. Denis, my classmate, told the camera: "When we learned that he had committed these crimes it was a shock." Others said I was a rare case - killing just for the sake of killing. There is no motivation: neither race nor sex nor religion. Even someone wrote: Pichushkin himself doesn’t know yet that the history of criminology is changed, that it didn’t account for someone such as him, that he will go down in history forever ...

I have never watched football. No football, no hockey.

I would like to live in Mexico. First, it is warm there, and secondly, there are forests. Maybe there I could live in a different way if I was there...
[After the Tvoi Den reporter told Puchushkin that Mexico doesn’t have forests, he replied:]
Do you want to tell me there are no jungles? Like Freddy Krueger said, “Elm Street exists in every city.”
