Kamenka Officers Go Down for Hazing Incident

The 138th Motorized Rifle Brigade (MRB) at Kamenka (V/Ch 02511) in the LenVO has always had a pretty bad rep for hazing cases.  A Defense Ministry source told Fontanka.ru that 8 Kamenka officers have been removed from duty over the latest incident.  They include platoon, company, battalion, and brigade commanders, the battalion and brigade chiefs of staff, and deputy brigade commanders for armaments and socialization work.  They have reportedly been dismissed from the service as well, although the Defense Ministry has not confirmed this.  In early October, a conscript and contract serviceman were beaten by three drunken sergeants in the unit.  They turned to the Soldiers’ Mothers of Petersburg for assistance.  Initial press reports said 16 soldiers in all were beaten by the sergeants.  See Forum.msk for more.  This was probably just the last straw after a long line of incidents in this troubled brigade.
