The investigation found that a resident of the Irkutsk region arrived in Ukraine as part of the Russian army. His column was broken by servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. While fleeing, he and four other colleagues fired machine guns at a private car and appropriated it. In a stolen car, the invaders drove into the village of Chupakhivka, Sumy region.

The defendant fired several aimed shots from an open car window from a Kalashnikov assault rifle at the head of a 62-year-old man. He died on the spot a few tens of meters from his own house.
