Soldier in Russian City Killed Three, Committed Suicide

A soldier in the Russian city of Kostroma, 300 kilometers north of Moscow, killed two soldiers and an officer, injured another two military men and then shot himself, TASS news agency reported on Wednesday, citing Defense Ministry spokespeople.

The investigation revealed that the killer might have attacked the victims out of personal motives, the report said.

"Injured military men are receiving the necessary medical care at the moment," ministry spokespeople told TASS.

A ministry commission and investigators from the military subdivision of the Investigative Committee are working at the crime scene now, the report said.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
