KHABAROVSK, March 29 (Itar-Tass) —— The criminal case was opened over the death in the live fire drill of commander of the liaison battalion Maj. Sergei Solnechnikov in Belogorsk, the Amur Region, a source in the military prosecutor’s office in the garrison said on Thursday.
“The inquiry was launched over the fulfilment of the requirements of the legislation for safe service conditions,” the source said.
The incident occurred on Wednesday, March 28. A combat grenade hurled by a conscript serviceman got in the trench near his fellow servicemen. The officer had no more than 4-5 seconds to take a decision in this situation. The major covered the grenade with his body, shielding the soldiers from fragments of the grenade. The officer died of heavy wounds.
Officers of the military prosecutor’s offices from Khabarovsk and Moscow work in the military unit, where Maj. Solnechnikov died. The specialists are investigating the tragedy.
Sergei Solnechnikov was born in Volgograd. He graduated from the Kemerovo Higher Military Command Academy of Communications. Since 2004 he served in Belogorsk.
