Officer of Special Forces tells about poll and readiness to shoot in protestors
The law enforcer - who showed the activists his military registration card and ID - says the survey had been carried out by “people from Moscow.”
There was a poll related to readiness to use weapon against civilians during rallies. The poll was carried out among employees of the Special Forces. This is being reported by Navalny’s headquarters with reference to a story by a Special Forces officer. The law enforcer says the survey had been carried out by “people from Moscow.”
“The most unpleasant question that was there is as follows: if there’s unrest in society, will you be able to use weapon against civilians if there’s an order from executives?” the fighter says. In his words, there had not been such questions before. A lot of us were shocked by this,” the law enforcer added. He noted he and his colleagues answered ‘no’ to the question.
“I doubt that a person from the Ministry of Defense would ever use weapon against a civilian,” the law enforcer stated.
The officer also said he had taken part in action operation in Syria. He called the unrest in the country the “senseless fight for oil.” He fighter also added that at the present time, officers of the Special Forces of Russia’s military intelligence service do not spend time on preparation, but on “a nice picture and serene paper reports for senior executives and federal authorities.” As a result, the Special Forces lose in many ways during the action operations.
Employees of Navalny’s headquarters told Znak.com that the officer of the Special Forces showed them his military registration card with a page where his major is indicated, as well as ID with QR-code and symbol of the Ministry of Defense.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
