The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed to give a legal assessment to shooting by Ukrainian journalist


The media published video footage showing Ukrainian journalist Yuri Butusov firing a howitzer into Donbass territory. As reported by a number of sources, Butusov himself admitted his involvement "in the deaths of some people in Donbass" in the caption to the video.

The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia instructed the investigators of the Central Office to verify this information and assess the actions of the shooter in terms of current legislation. If there are grounds, they will be given a legal assessment as part of the criminal case on crimes against civilians in the South-East of Ukraine.
