Information reaching Naija News House says that Gunman Opens Fire On Military Office

Russia’s Irkutsk local governor on Monday reported that a gunman was detained after opening fire at a draft office in Russia’s Irkutsk region.

Military Office

The gunman, who in a video published on social media was seen identifying himself to police officers as 25-year-old Ruslan Zinin, opened fire at a draft office in the town of Ust-Ilimsk.

A separate video of the shooting showed him firing at least one shot inside the draft office.

Reuters was unable to verify the videos.

Irkutsk region Governor Igor Kobzev wrote on the Telegram messaging app that the draft office head was in hospital in a critical condition and that the detained shooter “will absolutely be punished.”

Several draft offices had been attacked since Russian President Vladimir Putin declared a partial mobilisation on Wednesday.

Protests against the draft took place over the weekend in Dagestan and Yakutia, both of which had supplied disproportionate numbers of soldiers for the war in Ukraine.
