In the chilling video he says: “People, my name is Dima. I killed my father today because he has been pressuring me since I was a child.”
He claimed his father inflicted injuries on him in childhood but said he was put into a secure psychiatric facility.
Stepanov said he had been released from the facility but was scared about going back and wanted to avenge his broken life.
He ends the video saying: “My childhood dream was to kill him. Think about it. It came true. Because children’s dreams have to come true. That’s all so far.”
