The media reported on the removal from office of the chairman of the Committee of Soldiers' Mothers of Russia Flera Salikhovskaya. Her colleagues confirm this, but they say that this decision has nothing to do with the statement of the former leader about the situation with the shooting of a soldier in Transbaikalia.

In the interview Echo of Moscow, the deputy head of the Committee Andrei Kurochkin said that the question of early termination of powers of Salikhovskaya was raised two months ago and supported by a majority of votes. At the same time, he noted that the leader’s statements about the lack of hazing in the army and the reasons for the tragedy in Transbaikalia, which allegedly became computer games and the Internet, have nothing to do with the official position of the organization.

Andrei Kurochki added that the documents were submitted to the Ministry of Justice, however, while Fleur Salikhovskaya legally continues to chair the committee. However, she can work only with the consent of the board.

At the end of October in one of the military units of the Trans-Baikal Territory, a soldier shot his colleagues. Eight people were killed. According to the Ministry of Defense, the reason for this was the personal conflict of a soldier with one of the officers, according to other information, the soldier was humiliated and physically abused.

Defense insiststhat the crime must be qualified as murder in a state of passion. The maximum penalty under this article is five years in prison.
