'Russian Vigilante' relives his pain

Vitaly Kaloev – the man who killed an air traffic controller who he blamed for his family’s death – has been reliving his tragic ordeal. He remains defiant and accuses the SkyGuide company of not doing enough to remember the victims

Kaloev has returned to his home in the Southern republic of North Ossetia after an early release from a Swiss prison.

Vitaly has told Russia Today it was a crime he committed while being in enormous pain. He says it was a crime of a father and a husband who lost everything.

He stalked and murdered Peter Nielsen, the SkyGuide controller he held responsible for the death of his loved ones.

71 people were killed when a cargo plane and a passenger jet, carrying Kaloev’s wife and two children, collided in the skies over Boden lake.
