The well-known Russian-speaking blogger and Youtuber Mikhail Kiryak has been found dead in his apartment in Tiraspol (Transnistria). While Moldova – Transnistria – Russia have occasional cultural tiffs, it initially appears the murder is not politically motivated. Kiryak went under the alias of The Natakorn, and was known on the Web for his video game reviews – primarily among fans of Minecraft.
According to the 18 year old’s wife, the murderer struck a knife into Mikhail’s back after finding his way into the apartment.
According to other sources, the body of the blogger was found in his bathroom with numerous stab wounds. The circumstances of the tragedy are being clarified.
