Shishkina also has a five-year-old son who was not with her at the time of the attack.

He has since been taken into care while his mother has been detained.

It’s reported that the woman was being supervised by social services, which has sparked outrage from people across the nation.

Senior regional politician Roman Titov has questioned why the children were not taken into care earlier.

‘What else needs to happen for the responsibly federal agencies to recognise we are going the wrong way?’ he asked.
