A spokesman for the head of state called the incident a special case and tragedy.
He also noted that before determining the true causes of the emergency and the appearance of the results of an official investigation into the tragedy, it would be unprofessional to draw a conclusion about how much the reform of the Russian army took place.
Dmitry Peskov added to his statement that what had happened was not the president’s question, and he would not react to this.
Recall that on October 25, in the military unit 54160, deployed in the Transbaikal village of Gorny, conscript soldier Ramil Shamsutdinov, while on guard, shot eight colleagues from the service weapon and wounded several more people.
On October 28, the Chita garrison military court chose a measure of restraint for Shamsutdinov in the form of detention for the period requested by the investigation.
At present, the Investigative Committee of Russia and the military prosecutor's office are establishing motives that pushed Shamsutdinov, who served four months, to kill a group of people.
The Investigative Committee opened a criminal case on the grounds of a crime under subsection “a” of part 2 of article 105 of the Criminal Code of Russia (“The murder of two or more persons”). ”
