Acid attacks have become a favoured way for many people in relationships to get back at their partners or ex partners. Unfortunately it is one of the most gruesomely destructive acts you have ever seen—which is exactly why they use it.
Horrific ordeal. It resembled a scene from a really sick movie when 24-year-old Yekaterina M had to endure hours of torture as her boyfriend, Vyatcheslav, poured acid on her, pinned her down then set her on fire in an apartment in Moscow, Russia.
He deprived her of medical treatment in the aftermath of the attack. The victim suffered severe burns but Vyatcheslav, allegedly kept her in the flat away from medical treatment for two hours. Photos show the woman in hospital with her head, chest and arms covered in bandages.
"He asked me not to share this photo, but I did, in our chat," she said. Then when he found the photo in her sent box, he became enraged and attacked her.
"He thought that I wanted to get back with my ex. He told me that I had five minutes to leave the place. My dog was still in there, so I could not abandon it there. I was trying to make a joke out of the situation."
Although Russia decriminalized domestic violence recently, this incident falls well within the limits of procecution. Police are investigating.
