The head of the Kremlin press service Dmitry Peskov has no data on the death of a Russian soldier in Syria

55
Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, answering a question from journalists about the alleged death of an 19-year-old soldier of the Russian Armed Forces in Syria, said that the Kremlin does not have such data and that it is necessary to contact the Ministry of Defense. Dmitry Peskova quotes news agency TASS:


No, I don't know anything about that. I think that this needs to be clarified in the Ministry of Defense.


The head of the Kremlin press service Dmitry Peskov has no data on the death of a Russian soldier in Syria


Information that a Russian soldier allegedly died in Syria (his name is called Vadim Kostenko) began to spread through social networks. Radio station "Moscow says" writes that information about the death of an 19-year-old contract soldier who allegedly served in the service team at the Khmeimim airbase began to come from the relatives of the serviceman. In particular, Catherine Kostenko’s sister, Vadim Kostenko, in an interview with the journalists of the radio station “Moscow Speaking” stated that her brother’s body is currently in Mozdok. According to Catherine Kostenko, in the military commissariat, she and other relatives of the serviceman were told that Vadim had committed suicide.

Information about the death of a Russian soldier is currently not confirmed by representatives of the country's main defense department. However, there were no refutations from the official representatives of the Ministry of Defense either.

Recall that recently there has been a law in Russia, according to which all information about losses in peacetime is classified. Another question: is the time that is used by the Russian military for the counter-terrorist operation in Syria considered peaceful?

In any case, the information needs to be verified, since lately only information, including numerous fakes, has not been published about the counter-terrorist operation in Syria on the same social networks.

PS: And just a couple of minutes after the release news The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation presented an official comment on the situation:

A contract serviceman who served at the air base as a technical specialist committed suicide during rest after duty. According to preliminary information obtained, including on the basis of the analysis of SMS messages in his phone, the cause of the death of the contract soldier was a rift in personal relations with the girl.

    Well, what is the article about?
    If Peskov has information on the death of a serviceman, then he cannot voice it by virtue of current legislation.
    If Peskov does not have such information, then he quite correctly sent himself to the address: since a soldier, then this is a clearing of the Ministry of Defense.

    "In particular, Vadim Kostenko’s sister, Ekaterina, in an interview with the Moscow Talking radio station, stated that her brother’s body is currently in Mozdok. According to Yekaterina Kostenko, she and other relatives of the military serviceman were told that Vadim had committed suicide.

    So write an autopsy and all related procedures.
    Moreover. All morgues or related medical facilities now require a written statement by the relatives of the deceased to prohibit the autopsy. Otherwise, this is done without fail with a description of the causes of death.

      surprisingly, the commander did not reveal the mood of his fighter. If really the problems with the girl with prompted the person to such an act - unsatisfactory work with the personnel. What now there are no special officers in units? SMS only after suicide analyzed? In this case, also minus counterintelligence.

        The commander with the political officer will now begin to be razed to the ground, that's right.
        Question to you: did you yourself often succeed in stopping the suicidal mood of any of your subordinates in your service?
        At one time, I had an oldie who quarreled with a woman on the bus on her day off, got involved in a rams with her some acquaintance, and the next day (Saturday) just shot himself on duty.
        What special person is there to mother ?! If the psyche is unstable by definition, and the trunk is at hand, the decision can come within an hour and be realized too. From thoughts about the consequences for relatives surrounding the suicide, he isolates himself in the first place.

      I agree 100%. Well, ours cannot, despite all the reforms, sit in a puddle. With such attention from the press, both ours and the foreign, they are now fanning and fantasizing. What is no selection, including psychological and reciprocal? It seems to be a prestigious place that should be there the best of the best and not 19 year old teenagers only after a year of service. Unless of course it's suicide at all and not something else.

            that’s always bothered me - I’m capable of keeping the machine-capable, fulfilling the order and, according to the oath, killing and dying if necessary, capable, and not capable of drinking vodka in a civilian. On urgent and holidays were marked not on the dry (at that time the truth was from 18 sold) and no one died of this. Whoever needs one and at 15 in the insole under the bench is lying around and it is unlikely that the legislative age limit somehow affects% of underage alcoholics. It’s just not logical that the state approaches the concept of legal capacity, all types of responsibility are already present at the age of 18, and the right to decide for yourself what you need is no, that means such a law will simply not be respected.

          but why did you get that he didn’t go voluntarily, business travelers weren’t small, and in front of a girl with a “dough” he would look better. But you can’t get into the soul. And in war, the psychological load is doubly.
          We had a case, a quite adequate ensign, ran off to change clothes from the outfit home, and there my wife and friend in a piquant pose, shot myself right there with them, the “friend” did not even have time to jump and knock out a gun. And it is in peacetime, in a location !!! And it is not possible to foresee such things, I am sure most people themselves do not even imagine how they will behave in a difficult unexpected situation. But to discuss, condemn and advise much.

    even if true, the news is optional. Tired of hearing from morning to night about suicides, accidents on the roads and other incidents that mean nothing globally. So why blow it? For what? What is the use of this? Psychologists have failed? So psychologists and officers are obliged to follow this, but they are not seers. At the age of 19, urine hit his head. What now??? Does the entire staff weekly undergo psychological tests for depression?

And unfortunately, too often in our army everything is attributed to suicide. Perhaps uncles with military experience prevail there and the 19 year old teenager was simply eaten.

    It’s interesting. Yunsha went to volunteer camps, as I believe, voluntarily. Like any military man, he swore an oath to serve the Motherland and obey the orders of the Commander-in-Chief. Only volunteers were recruited to Syria. They all knew and know that there was a war there. The relatives of the contractors also knew and know this. And now they write to all the media and complain. In general, it turns out interesting, some contractors seem to think that their service is to track down the loot on the stove, and in the event of the beginning of something serious (the beginning of some military operations), he will quit quickly. And do not care about the homeland. I immediately stipulate, because I do not want to offend everyone in a row: That only some people think so.

      One of the tasks of the operation in Syria is to show the successes of our army, its reforms, to show that hazing and other hazing are a thing of the past. The military reports about the excellent conditions of service in Syria, about the fact that there are only contract volunteers, we can say the best of the best. And here is suicide on you. A great way for our detractor to write now a lot of things about our army and collect fables. Earth rest in peace with this guy, and commanding food for thought.

      Get everything without losing anything! I had to deal with such an attitude when raising two sons. And it was driven into their heads by school television and many factors of life. I struggled with this for a long time and only life gradually sets their brains in place. It’s clear at 19 that the brains still do not work. So it turns out for them (19-year-olds) the elders should think and preserve or have to bury.

        Yes, I think so too. Especially in the army and other high-risk and stressful areas, there should be specialists who monitor the emotional and mental state of the personnel — earlier these were army priests ... Psychologists should work in every part.

      This is creepy! Judging by the photos, the guy was proud of his military service. In that part, he remained to serve, clearly not knowing where he would be sent in September. What is this commander who decided to send a 19-year-old to war ?! Even if he himself wanted to - at that age, he still had childish and inadequate considerations. And there was no experience — neither worldly nor military. Or are there the commanders who don’t know which planet they are on ?! Very sorry guy.

    All this is suspicious, perhaps the Moscow Region does not finish something while the investigation is ongoing. But I can not believe that he, while in Syria, committed suicide. Relatives and friends say they killed him.
    Suicide due to a girl is a very frequent otmosis, at least for a while.
    I would like to know the details, but most likely there will be silence in the near future.
    The main thing is not to succumb to provocations, now there will be a lot of speculation on this subject ...
