With Donguz, the material begins, and we’ll finish this sad statistic.
October 2012 of the year. Orenburg region. Donguz The explosion of a large number of ammunition at the railway station during unloading. The fire that engulfed the territory of almost 20 hectares caused damage, according to the calculations of the military prosecutor’s office staff, which amounted to more than 200 million rubles.
Let us dwell on the investigation of the last of the presented incidents. The reason for considering the second Donguz episode lies in the fact that just the other day the court passed a sentence on this case, naming the perpetrators of the incident. More precisely - not individuals, but one person whom Private Kasatkin has become. Guilty private - well, of course! ..
At the same time, Alexander Kasatkin initially did not even identify the suspect in the case. VSO TFR opened a criminal case under Article 349 (part 1) of the Criminal Code "Violation of the rules for dealing with weapons and objects that pose an increased danger to others. ”As a result of this excitement, no one brought a personal judicial punishment, but the Ministry of Defense decided to disband the military unit in Donguz while closing the landfill.
At the same time, Alexander Kasatkin himself came to the UK and unexpectedly declared himself the only culprit of that drama. SK "went to meet" Kasatkin and opened a criminal case against him under article 127 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (part 1) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation "" Violation of safety rules at explosive facilities or in explosive workshops, if this caused major damage. "
The prosecution quickly found the situation and asked for an ordinary Kasatkin 15 months of restriction of liberty and payment in favor of the Ministry of Defense (no less) 234 million rubles. Another half a million rubles from Kasatkina was demanded by the administration of the district in which the state of emergency took place.
The court session in the garrison military court ended with a guilty verdict against Alexander Kasatkin, however, the sentence itself can be considered surprisingly mild - 30 thousand rubles as a fine. The court took into account that Private Kasatkin himself came to confess.
Agree strange история... More than strange. Against the background of a systematic state of emergency at various military depots and polygons where ammunition for various purposes is stored, the development of the situation in this case resembles a performance in the theater of the absurd. Judge for yourself. If the branch of the rank and file took part in the loading and unloading operations at the railway station, then at least some sergeant should have been watching this work. Least!
Continuing the reasoning and taking into account the testimony of Kasatkin, who said that he threw an unpatched cigarette butt, you come to the conclusion that if someone from the control link was, then he did not give a damn about what Kasatkin himself and his other colleagues were doing. Do you smoke? Well, to hell with you ... And I will stand aside ... If so, then it is not clear why the one who stood aside did not find himself on the dock.
Based on this question, it can be concluded that either there was no military officer at all at the station controlling the process of unloading ammunition, or they simply decided to shield it at the expense of Private Kasatkin. If there was no such person, then from the officers of this unit you need not only to tear off shoulder straps, but also to send them to the tribunal. But the tribunal, as we understand, regarding the command of the military unit did not take place.
If you decided to shield this most controlling (irresponsible) person, you are once again surprised at the logic of the Russian military investigation: a soldier came, took the blame, it means everything is in the bag, the investigation could not be continued ... In this case, the investigation would it would be even more convenient if private Kasatkin took the blame for both Donguz, Buzuluk, Mulino, and Spassky training ground in Primorsky Krai. Like, I went on business trips - I toured, and everywhere, you know, I smoked alongside ammunition. So it happened ... They exploded ...
Indeed, a bitter comedy.
Bitter comedy can be called a fine for a fighter in the amount of 30 thousand rubles. The sum of this fine itself seems to indicate that the court itself understands: Kasatkin’s accusation and “confession” of the guilt by Kasatkin are sewn with white threads, or more simply, natural, forgive mercy, bullshit ... Like, the court realizes that there is someone behind Kasatkin something else, but it is better not to touch this “someone else”, and the shooter Kasatkin himself is a pity ... Therefore, let this sinner pay 30 thousands, and forget about the donguz incident.
But it will. Forget it. And about Spassk, and about Chapaevsk, and about Ulyanovsk - after all, the "guilty" were found, and they suffered (will suffer) a "severe" punishment. Only with such an approach, one can not cherish hopes that the military landfills and warehouses will no longer turn into ashes ... So maybe the investigation still needs to dig deeper into the "confessions" of Private Kasatkin, and not lie to himself about an open case punishing the guilty ... And in the Ministry of Defense itself, it is time to raise the statistics of the rushing warehouses and echelons, going to real organizational conclusions.
