Footage of a popular Russian YouTuber’s deceased girlfriend is still circulating on major social media sites, a week after he reportedly tortured her to death.
Stanislav Reshetnikov, a 30-year-old vlogger known online as Stas Reeflay, was arrested last week outside of Moscow after allegedly forcing his pregnant girlfriend onto a balcony in sub-zero temperatures.
The woman, 28-year-old Valentina Grigoryeva, is said to have been wearing only underwear and died shortly after of hypothermia.
Even worse, followers of Reshetnikov had reportedly encouraged the behavior in a live stream chat, with one user reportedly donating $1,000 in order to see Grigoryeva tortured.
The gruesome footage goes on to show Reshetnikov eventually dragging Grigoryeva’s limp body back inside. Reshetnikov, according to translations from the Sun, realized she was dead not long after.
“Guys… No pulse… She’s pale,” Reshetnikov tells viewers. “She is not breathing.”
The live stream continues even after paramedics arrived on scene and were unsuccessful in reviving Grigoryeva.
YouTube told the Daily Dot last week that although the footage was not livestreamed on its platform, the site was working to take down copies of the video.
According to the Sun, however, the graphic clip is still widely available a week later, not only on YouTube but on TikTok as well.
The Daily Dot was able to find uncensored copies of the clip as well on both platforms by merely searching for the vlogger’s name.
Google, which owns YouTube, said it would investigate the videos after being provided links to multiple clips by the Daily Dot.
A TikTok representative, however, appeared to deny that any such clips still existed on its platform.
“This content is no longer on our platform,” the spokesperson said.
Reshetnikov, who has since been arrested, could face up to 15 years if convicted in Grigoryeva’s death. The Sun also added that Grigoryeva, according to police, sustained serious injuries that appeared to come from beatings prior to her death.
Reshetnikov is seen in numerous videos assaulting Grigoryeva. In one clip, he is seen repeatedly pepper-spraying her. In another, Reshetnikov can be seen grabbing Grigoryeva’s face before violently shaking her.
