MOSCOW, February 6 - RAPSI. Dmitry Vinogradov, a Moscow lawyer who shot dead six people in November 2012 and is widely referred to as the "Russian Breivik" has pleaded guilty and stated that he should not be compared to the infamous Norwegian killer in the Babushkinsky District Court in Moscow on Wednesday.

Vinogradov, 30, opened fire on his colleagues from two semi-automatic shotguns while they were working at their desks. Five died in the attack and the sixth later died in the hospital. The only victim who survived is still being treated.

While answering journalists' questions about the manifesto that he posted on his social networking page shortly before the shooting, he called the text "nonsense."

He added that he expects to receive life imprisonment and cannot say exactly why he went on the shooting spree in his office. He has been charged with murder and attempted murder.

The court has extended his arrest until April 6.

"We have different motives," he said when asked by a journalist whether or not he considers himself a follower of Norway's infamous mass killer Andrers Breivik.

On July 2011, Breivik set off explosives in central Oslo, killing eight people, and then opened fire at a youth camp on Utoeya, leaving 69 dead.
The court found him criminally sane and sentenced him to 21 years in prison.
