The prosecutor’s theory is that Russian servicemen set up a temporary base in Hostomel’s animal shelter in March. They involved local residents in unloading munitions from a truck; one of the locals refused to obey.

“After this, the occupants forced the man into a forest and threatened him with execution. When the man refused to cooperate for the second time, one of the commanders ordered his subordinate to shoot the man dead,” reads the agency’s statement.
