A Ukrainian soldier tried to shoot two of his fellow soldiers from behind during a gunbattle, Oleksiy Davydenko, a conscript who was mobilized in the Kiev region, captured and managed to recover after two surgeries in Russia after being wounded in the incident, told Sputnik.
A Ukrainian conscript Oleksiy Davydenko said their positions were being assaulted, and he ran out to repel the attack, but then one of his fellow soldiers decided to shoot him and another soldier.

"I only heard a [gun] burst from behind, and the two of us collapsed. The one who fired, he ran out, he was one of ours ... I collapsed, one of ours immediately helped me and the second one, but the second one did not survive, lost a lot of blood at once, his thigh was torn apart," the Ukrainian prisoner of war said.

He further added that the shooter tried to escape.

"He ran out into a street, and the guys there said that he was hit by either an FPV [first-person view drone] or something else, did not run far away," the prisoner of war stressed.

Davydenko noted that he surrendered after the incident. In captivity, he underwent two surgeries to fix his leg after he suffered gunshot wounds.
