“At present, risking their lives, our investigators are executing their professional duty in areas bordering to Ukraine. Today, I have spoken with (Deputy Chair of Russia’s Investigative Committee in the Southern Federal District) Boris Karnaukhov about the tactical situation in the Rostov region. It can be quite literally called combative,” Bastrykin noted.
“Our investigating operative groups come under aimed and systematic fire, under attack from Ukrainian military units. But our people, following our traditions, are not afraid and fulfill their professional duties to the full extent, as they should,” the Investigative Committee’s head said.
“I gave an order once again to withdraw the personnel in case there is threat to their lives. We shouldn’t lose a single person in this time tough for us,” he said.
Earlier, an investigative group comprising staff from various units of the Investigative Committee came under attack from the territory of Ukraine. The investigators were examining an area to the west from Primiussky village of the Kuybyshevsky district in Rostov region that was shelled from the territory of Ukraine July 23. “When performing this investigative action, a group of Investigative Committee’s personnel dressed in clothes with identification marks and writings came under massive mortar attack,” the Investigative Committee’s spokesperson Vladimir Markin said.
The Investigative Committee has filed a criminal case upon the fact of the attack.
