*asked why he wanted to be like Chikatilo*- It’s a lie, it’s wrong information. I know many people believe that he was my idol, but it’s not true. I have never competed with him or anything. Chikatilo is Chikatilo, and I am is what I am, we are different. Chikatilo is a sexual maniac and a cannibal. He ate, tore, throwed something, scattered, you know. But I’ve got a clean 105 [article of Russian Criminale Code], I mean “Murder”. He did it for sexual motive, and I - for other reasons. We are absolutely different, we can not be compared. A very different things. The only thing that may be similar is a number [of victims] but I beat him, that Chikatilo, by number too.- Alexander Pichushkin
