A shooting incident took place in the town of Kamyshlov in Russia’s Sverdlovsk Oblast (region) on May 4.
According to reports and video evidence, a member of the lower house of the Federal Assembly of Russia, Dmitry Ionin used a Kalashnikov assault rifle in the courtyard of the hotel-restaurant “Lensky”.
Following the incident, police arrived the secene.
In own turn, Ionon claimed via Facebook that someone alongside him “shot from a toy automatic rifle.” This is ridiculous.
The video clearly shows that Ionin opened a serial fire from an automatic rifle. The secene is surrounded by multiple family dwellings and is located near the children’s playground. The uploaded videos allow to see young children playing near the scene.
The May 4 incident once again demonstrated an open disregard of the standards of public peace and moral from the part of the Russian bureaucracy, which considers itself the “new aristocracy”.
In April, SouthFront reported a shooting incident in the city of Kazan, when the man was filmed using a semi-automatic firearm in the city center, near the administrative building.
Unfortunately, in both cases, active participants of the incidents faced no real punishment.
