The SBI identified russian service members who, with tanks, were firing at a hospital in Trostyanets


The SBI employees notified two service members of the 1st Tank Regiment of the 2nd Guards Tamanskaya Motorized Rifle Division of suspicion, who, with tanks, were firing point-blank at the building of the Trostyanets district hospital.

According to the investigation, in March, during the occupation of Trostyanets, the invaders encircled the local hospital with several tanks and opened fire at a medical facility.

The SBI established that the commander of the T-72 tank, a native of the Republic of Tatarstan, Petro Smirnov, gave the command to fire with a 125-mm cannon.

He and his assistant gunner Aynur Mukhametzhanov was notified of suspicion of violating the laws and customs of war (Part 1 of Article 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

The article provides for deprivation of liberty for up to 12 years.

The investigation is ongoing; the other tank crew will be notified of suspicion shortly.

All occupiers will be identified and severely punished.

The Sumy Regional Prosecutor's Office provides procedural guidance.
