At the shaman’s house, the doors were broken open, things were scattered, and there were many stains like blood on the floor, Sasha himself was taken out with a bandaged head, two stitches were put on the soft tissues, – the lawyer writes.

The lawyer asked people who are not indifferent to the fate of Alexander not to call the hospital.
