ROSTOV-ON-DON, July 27 /TASS/. A Ukrainian border guard opened fire at a selfie-lover in Russia’s southern Rostov region when he was trying to take a photo of himself against a Ukrainian border post. The man was taken to hospital with a gunshot wound," a regional law enforcement source told TASS.
The information has been confirmed by the Russian Federal Border Service department for the Rostov region.
"Two men were having a rest on the bank of an artificial water reservoir located in the Russian territory near the Novorusskiy farm (Millerovsky district) in the Rostov region and decided to take photos of themselves against the background of Ukrainian border checkpoint Krasnaya Talovka. A Ukrainian border guard shouted ‘Stop’ and opened fire at them wounding one of the selfie-lovers," the press service of the Russian Federal Border Service said.
The Russian was wounded in the chest. His friends took him to the adjacent Russia-controlled border checkpoint Voloshino and asked the Russian border guards for help.
The man was taken to a nearby hospital where he received medical treatment.
The Krasnaya Talovka checkpoint is under the Ukrainian government control.
