MOSCOW, July 27. /TASS/. Russia’s Investigations Committee has opened a criminal case over an episode when two Russian citizens came under gunfire from the territory of Ukraine, Committee’s Spokesman Vladimir Markin told TASS on Monday.
He said criminal proceedings had been initiated on charges of attempted murder (part 3, article 30 and part 2, article 105 of the Russian Criminal Code).
The incident took place in Russia’s southern Rostov region near the Krasnaya Talovka checkpoint at the Russian-Ukrainian border. Two Russian citizens were taking a photo of themselves on the backdrop of the border crossing point when a Ukrainian border guard opened gunfire at them. "The two young men approached the turnpike at the border and stayed near it on the Russian side for about five minutes. An armed man in fatigues came up to them from the Ukrainian side to a distance of about 30 meters and shouted ‘Stop,’" Markin said. "The young men took to flight when the armed man fired at least four shots at them."
One of the young men was wounded in the chest and was taken to hospital. The other one was not wounded. "According to investigators’ data, the Krasnaya Talovka checkpoint is controlled by the Ukrainian army," Markin said.
Under the Russian Criminal Code, foreign citizens are held liable for crimes committed outside Russia in cases when such crimes are aimed against the interests of Russia or a Russian citizen and if such foreign citizens faced no punishment in a foreign state.
