Reporters also talked to mother of one of the military. She said that her son was a contract soldier. The mother received a document from the military office stating that her son was killed during a counter-terrorist operation in the North Caucasus.
Relatives of other military flatly refused to talk and even showed aggression towards the reporters. At the same time the villagers of other soldiers told that they perished on the territory of Ukraine.
The medium failed to get official comments from the TV staff, but sources said that journalists are consulting with lawyers at the moment. They decided to release the story next week.
As reported earlier, on May 28, Putin classified the information about those killed during special operations in peacetime as the state secret.
