Russian President Vladimir Putin called the Kerch college attack "a result of globalisation", taking part in the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Thursday.

"We can see in social media, in the Internet, there are communities [dedicated to killing]. Everything began with well-known tragic events in US schools," the Russian leader said, noting that such tragic events prove that countries all over the world are failing to offer youngsters "interesting and useful content" as an alternative to violence.

According to the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM), the death toll of the attack has risen to 21, with dozens of others wounded.

The incident, which saw several shots fired and at least one large blast, is being investigated as a multiple homicide, according to Russia's Investigative Committee.
