In Nizhny Novgorod, a court declared a local resident Anatoly Moskvin, who was accused of desecrating the bodies of dead children and placed in a psychiatric clinic for compulsory treatment, incompetent.

For a long time, on the territory of Nizhny Novgorod, Moscow, as well as the Nizhny Novgorod and Moscow regions, a Nizhny Novgorod man dug up the graves of girls from 3 to 12 years old, removed the bodies from the graves and made mummies from them. For this, he used a special composition of salt and soda, in which he placed the excavated bodies of the dead, hidden by him in hiding places near cemeteries.

Police officers found mummified bodies in the apartment of Moskvin and his parents and in the garage in the fall of 2011.

Moskvin actively cooperated with investigators and explained that he made mummies because he wanted to have a daughter. According to him, the mummies replaced her, he considered them his children, talked to them and even arranged holidays for them.

According to the results of the examination, the Nizhny Novgorod citizen was declared insane. He was diagnosed with a mental disorder, the disease deprives Moskvin of the ability to realize the reality and social danger of his actions and manage them. In May 2012, by a court decision, Moskvin was sent for compulsory treatment in a psychiatric hospital.

In the fall of 2018, the Leninsky District Court of Nizhny Novgorod ordered another forensic psychiatric examination to see if he could be transferred to outpatient treatment.

The prosecutor’s office, in turn, demanded an examination in order to understand whether he is dangerous to society. But in February 2019, doctors reported a deterioration in Moskvin’s health, medical measures remained unchanged.
