On July 5, FSB officers in Tyumen shot and killed a man during his arrest. According to the intelligence service, he was preparing a terrorist attack. However, the victim's girlfriend does not believe this. She contacted the local publication 72.ru and said that he was going to war as a volunteer in the Russian army.
According to the girl, the victim's name was Andrei L., he was an ethnic Ukrainian, he was 38 years old. Born and lived in Tyumen. “I was a taxi driver, but I also worked part-time in a military store.” On the day of death, “I had to go to a friend out of town to take the wheels,” the girl said. She also said that after Prigozhin's rebellion, Andrey allegedly "wanted to volunteer and serve for Russia," but she dissuaded him because he had asthma.
“I want justice. They put a label on him. What if they don't let him be buried? We always spent time together with him. I would obviously suspect something, I'm not a stupid girl. He shared everything with me. We didn’t have any secrets,” the girl said.
The Investigative Committee reported earlier that on July 4, in a forest belt near a gas and oil distribution hub, a suspect opened fire on law enforcers. The FSB officers killed him with return fire. According to investigators, the man was going to "detonate one of the fuel and energy facilities." With him, the security forces allegedly found a Makarov pistol and a homemade bomb.
