YEKATERINBURG, October 29 (Itar-Tass) — Lieutenant Ildar Khusainov who was killed by a grenade burst in the Orenburg region on October 27 was implicated in the criminal case about explosions in the Donguzsky range, said Alexei Okatyev, a spokesman for the military prosecutors office of the Central Military District, told Itar-Tass on Monday without specifying what blasts were meant.
“That case was not connected with the blasts of October 9, when 4,000 shells exploded in the range,” he said.
Khusainov was informed last week that the criminal case connected with explosions in the Donguzsky range was dropped against him, sources in the press service of the Main Military Investigation Department of the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation, told Itar-Tass. The examination found no link between Khusainov’s actions and moderate harm to the health of two servicemen.
Sources said Khusainov had been uninvolved in a criminal case of hazing. Investigators work on various versions, not excluding personal motives,” sources said.
Lieutenant Ildar Khusainov was killed on Saturday, October 27, by a grenade blast in a hostel in the Orenburg region. Investigation is on.
