According to the State Investigation Bureau, the Ivano-Frankivsk City Court sentenced the officer who beat a conscript to 1.5 years in a disciplinary battalion of military personnel. This happened because of the defendant’s “sincere remorse” and because he was being brought to trial for the first time, the SBI reports.
In mid-April, a video began circulating online that showed an officer swearing obscenities and inflicting bodily harm on a soldier, the agency writes.
On April 18, a video appeared on the Internet in which a National Guard officer beat a conscript in a military unit in the Ivano-Frankivsk region.
An official investigation was then initiated, the press service of the NSU’s Western Territorial Administration told LIGA.net.
“The officer used force against a subordinate after the soldier made obscene comments to him,” the investigation found.
After the investigation was completed, an indictment was submitted to the court in May.
The officer was found guilty of abuse of power or abuse of office by a military official under the laws of war.
The court sentenced him to 1.5 years in a disciplinary battalion of military personnel.
The court made this decision taking into account the defendant’s “sincere remorse” and the fact that he was brought to trial for the first time, writes the State Bureau of Investigation.
