On January 27, a conscript soldier of the National Guard of Ukraine, who was later identified as Artemy Ryabchuk, opened automatic fire on his comrades-in-arms. The video of the attack appeared on the Internet.
The young man opened fire on the guardsmen in the premises of the Yuzhmash machine-building plant in Dnipro. Five people, including one military woman, were killed as a result of the shooting, five others were wounded.
The attacker, Artemy Ryabchuk, born in 2001, was detained soon afterwards. A criminal case was initiated into counts of murder. The shooter may spent the rest of his life in jail.
The footage shows Ryabchuk, wielding a machine gun, approaching the armory and opening fire on the National Guardsmen inside. The shooter then leaves the room, but then comes back to grab a loading clip and cartridges for it.
Ukrainian law enforcement officers detained Ryabchuk in the town of Podgorodnoye, the Dnepropetrovsk region.
Up to 16,000 military men of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been entrapped near the towns of Severodonetsk and Lysichansk
