The TRC described the video as “another instance of manipulative information distortion.”

The incident occurred on June 10 during a citizen notification operation in Kharkiv Oblast, the TRC said. Servicemen asked the man to show his military registration documents, but he rudely refused. While waiting for the police, several other citizens approached the TRC employees and verbally attacked them.

One of the servicemen was injured. Authorities have launched a criminal investigation. The TRC clarified that the servicemen initially tried to avoid conflict but were forced to defend themselves. This latter part was captured on video.
