Russian Soldier “Goes Crazy” feets away from Vladimir Putin, smashed three windows of vehicle with Soviet era machine gun.
A criminal case has been opened against the “crazy” Russian soldier.
This is the moment a Russian soldier attacked a Federal Security Guards Service vehicle with his machine gun.
The incident happened shortly before the Victory Day parade in Moscow that marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
According to reports, the 22-year-old motorized rifle brigade, Nikita Eremenko, went crazy after he was “unfairly” suspended from participation in the parade.
Eremenko was said to have quarreled with a colleague about 30 minutes before the parade.
A military intelligence officer who eye-witnessed the fight between the two men, decided to suspend the private from the parade.
His suspension was believed to have caused the soldier to have a nervous breakdown.
Footage of the incident was captured on CCTV. In the video, the soldier was seen approaching a blue FSB vehicle with his unloaded Soviet era machine gun.
After getting to his target, he started smashing the windows of the driver’s door with the gun-butt.
The incident forced a plain-clothed officer out of the front seat before uniformed men ran up to the soldier and knocked him down.
The soldier was said to be around 500ft from Russian President Vladimir Putin when the incident happened.
“It was a protest against the existing regime and the Federal Security Service. I believe that they have acted unfairly against me,”
A criminal case has been opened against Eroshenko.
