In June, Russian military and FSB officers opened fire in a cafe in temporarily occupied Kherson. Three of them died.

Yahoo News reports this with reference to the report of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation on the incident, which was at the disposal of journalists.

The shootout occurred on June 19 around 20:00. Three FSB officers - Igor Yakubinsky, Sergey Privalov, and D. A. Borodin - entered a cafe on Ushakov Avenue. Russian contractors have already been drinking in the establishment - Sergeant Sergei Obukhov and Junior Sergeant Igor Sudin from the eighth artillery regiment of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

The FSB agents allegedly reproached the invaders for drunkenness in uniform and with weapons. Obukhov responded by firing a pistol at the floor. FSB officer Privalov tried to grab a pistol, and Sosudin opened fire from an Ak-74 - Yakubinsky and Privalov returned fire

As a result of the skirmish, contract soldier Obukhov, FSB officers Privalov and Yakubinsky were killed. Borodin and Sudin were hospitalized in a hospital in Sevastopol. Another FSB officer, whose name was not disclosed, fled the shootout scene.

Earlier in the temporarily occupied Vasilyevka, Zaporizhzhia region, a conflict broke out between the Buryats and the "Kadyrovites". They had a firefight because each side wanted to control the city. The fight ended in casualties, although the exact number of dead and wounded is unknown.
