How Gretta Vedler Was Killed
Vedler was killed one month after she posted on social media calling President Putin a “psychopath” and forecasting his drive to “enhance the integrity of Russia” would end in tears.
After one year that had gone missing, her ‘jealous’ ex-boyfriend, Dmitry Korovin has now confessed to strangling her to death following a row over money in Moscow in February last year.
Korovin told interrogators he spent three nights in a hotel room with her corpse before stuffing it inside a new suitcase and driving 300 miles to the Lipetsk region where he left it in the boot of a car.
The boyfriend said he kept posting pictures and messages on the model’s social media to make friends believe she was still alive.
Vedler’s body was discovered after a male friend, Evgeniy Foster, who is a blogger in Kharkiv, became suspicious and got another pal in Moscow to file a missing person report.
A video from Russia’s Investigative Committee shows Korovin allegedly demonstrating how he killed the model, and making a full confession.
Gretta Vedler Slams Vladimir Putin
Back in January 2021, a month before she was murdered, the model blasted Putin over his crackdown on protests and what she saw as a desire to forge a bigger Russia.
Vedler wrote, “Given the fact that Putin went through a lot of humiliation in childhood, he could not stand up for himself due to his [slight] physical form, it is not surprising that he left after law school and joined the KGB.
“Such people are timid and fearful from childhood, afraid of noise and darkness, strangers, so traits such as caution, restraint, and lack of communication are developed early in their character.
“I can only assume, in my opinion, a clear psychopathy or sociopathy is seen in him.”
“For psychopaths, it is important to constantly experience a sense of fullness and sharpness of life, so they love risk, intense experiences, intense communication, intense activity – an intense and dynamic life.
“Maybe he really wants to enhance the integrity of Russia and sincerely wishes the good for the Russians.
“But can he really do anything?.. I think you know the answer to this question yourself, “ Vedler said as she made clear she had grave doubts.
The Russian model’s postings on Putin in January 2021 are not considered to be connected with her death, but are chilling in the light of his subsequent invasion of Ukraine since last month.
KanyiDaily had reported that on February 24, Russian troops invaded Ukraine after President Vladimir Putin ordered a special military operation in Donbas, killing thousands of military and civilians on both sides.
