The Russian Volunteer Corps (RDK), a paramilitary unit of Russian citizens based in Ukraine and fighting against the Russian government released a video which they say shows their assassination of a high-ranking Russian intelligence officer.

According to a Kyiv Post source in the Main Intelligence Directorate (HUR), the vehicle, which was fired upon on the outskirts of the village of Ulitsa in Russia’s Bryansk region resulted in the death of Lieutenant Colonel Sergey Shaty.
