A 28 y.o. Russian marine from Kaliningrad died from shrapnel wounds and 4 others were injured during clashes in Syria, a local Kaliningrad media outlet “Klops” reported on June 19, citing sources among relatives of the dead marine.
Some media outlets argue that Russian military servicemen have taken part in the recent clashes near Palmyra.
The reports have not been confirmed by the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD), yet.
Recently, the Russian MoD reported that another Russian serviceman has died in a Moscow hospital from wounds received in Syria.
