Sergeant 536-th separate coastal missile and artillery brigade of the military unit 10544 in the Murmansk region (Russian Federation) Vladimir Marchuk has complained to the Council on human rights under the President (HRC) on 10 November 2016 he was dismissed from service by violation of his rights under the contract. A contractor connects his resignation with the failure to go to war with the Ukrainians in the Donbass, informs RBC.
Marchukov since 1990, served in the structures of the interior Ministry and the defense Ministry. In March 2014 he was called up for military service in 536 brigade, part 10544. He was sent to the first division of coastal anti-ship complex «Redoubt» by the operator of the rocket launcher.
Sergeant told reporters that at the end of January 2015 contract his team caused in the galley part 10544, where the Colonel Rustam Sengepov allegedly threatened subordinates with dismissal if they refused to go to war against Ukraine. A few people refused, the remaining 56 went to the village of Sputnik near Murmansk, where is the 61st separate Kirkenes red banner naval infantry brigade of the Russian Federation.
In the new part of the soldiers were combat training with the change of military occupational specialties. Marchukov received sailor the position of the arrow. The exercises included shooting and training with special equipment.
In the village the soldiers complained it was cold in the barracks. In the end, the Companion came to the Deputy on educational work part 10544 Colonel Vyacheslav Okan, who reminded subordinates of the need for a «business trip» to Ukraine. Marchuk gave the media an audio recording of a conversation in which Okan said that «does not exclude the option of switching to the territory of Donetsk and Lugansk regions to provide direct assistance.» In February 2015, just fierce fighting for the strategically important railway junction debaltseve.
«If you don’t want to protect, if they crush the Luhansk and Donetsk… They are now used on the 20th anniversary of razgromlena Russia and we have not led a normal operation, said Okan subordinates. They came to power. Further the situation will lead to the fact that they come in Stavropol, Krasnodar Krai, Rostov, Bryansk and so on, if you don’t go there and won’t protect them there, you can’t protect them here.»
The Colonel confirmed the subject portal «Газета.Ru» adding that it «not understood».
Marchukov from a trip to the Donbass refused, instead, his wife filed a complaint to the HRC. As a result, in part, went to check the Commission of the defense Ministry. Deputy defense Minister Nikolai Pankov in March in a statement to the HRC denied the information about sending in the Donbass Murmansk contract.
«After the treatment of his wife in HRC part command denied sending a contract in Ukraine; it explained that they were sent for retraining. But it does not have to change in military card military specialty,» explained lie.
His wife Victoria has worked in a sailor’s dining room in part 10544. After treatment in the dining room of the HRC bosses warned her about the attention by the FSB. According to Marchukov, in the end she took a pass into the area, forced to leave without recording in the employment record and return with the child in Murmansk.
Marchukov after the incident in the Companion returned with colleagues to the part 10544. Some of his colleagues after the incident in the village, retired or were transferred to other parts. For some of them came to the polls FSB, said the Sergeant.
In his complaint to the HRC refers to the pressure command after the scandal in the Satellite. The authorities illegally entered in his service card recovery, forging signatures, said Marchuk. These marks Sergeant removed with report to the military Prosecutor. Pressure on Marchukova on condition of anonymity, confirmed one of his colleagues.
A year after the events in the Satellite, in January 2016, division Marchukova reduced and he was for the state, however, his contract was extended. After a month of service Marchukova presented a certification sheet, which stated disciplinary breach of contract. To sign the document, he refused.
On November 8, 2016 command appointed Marchukova recertified, but he’s failing. On 10 November he was dismissed from the armed forces by order of the commander of the Kola flotilla. Marchukov calls the certification «window dressing» because after it he lost service card with the order for removal of Prosecutor’s office of the brigade commander and all illegal punishment. In addition, said Marchukov, he was not given a photocopy of the document, despite an appropriate application. Marchukov thinks the order of dismissal illegal and links it with the refusal to go in the Donbass. In this case, senior Sergeant provided numerous positive characteristics from the interior Ministry and the military for 18 years of service.
In turn, the commander of the unit 10544 Colonel Yury Ryazantsev said that lie failed certification because of drunk driving.
«December 31 last year he was stopped drunk driving, — said the commander. — Documents [in part] came just now, he tried to arrange to have the documents did not reach the command.»
Marchuk confirmed that before the New year it really stop drunk driving, but about the incident, he immediately reported to the command and paid the fine. «I have been punished for an administrative offence. We serve as division officers, who are deprived the rights for drunk driving, and the authorities aware of this,» said staff Sgt.
A member of the HRC, coordinator of the movement «Citizen and army» Sergey Krivenko told RBC that the presidential human rights activists have asked the command of the military prosecutors to investigate a complaint of Sergeant. Krivenko believes that Marchukova have a chance to appeal the dismissal and return to service.
Recall that in may 2015 the Russian democratic mass media reported about the conscript Sergei Kholkin, refused military service because of not has officially declared war with Ukraine and demanded to provide, in this regard, the possibility of passing alternative non-military service.
Due to his refusal to fight with Ukraine reformatted a military unit on the Kola Peninsula 23.11.2016
