VLADIVOSTOK, September 15 (Itar-Tass) — An armed serviceman who deserted from his unit in Russia’s Far Eastern Primorsky territory was found early on Thursday, a spokesman for the command of the Eastern military district told Itar-Tass.
The young man, private first class Ivan Vasilyev, 18, had an AK-74M automatic rifle with no munitions, the spokesman said.
According to previous reports, Vasilyev left his unit deployed at a shooting ground near the settlement of Sergeyevka early on Wednesday, when his company left the camp. Each of the servicemen had a submachine gun but no ammunition. While the servicemen were heading for the shooting ground, Vasilyev returned to the camp. Duty servicemen who stayed at the camp said the young man claimed he had left his helmet. He emerged from his tent wearing one and rushed to join his fellow servicemen. His absence was noticed by lunchtime and search was launched.
