A Ukrainian National Guard soldier opened fire on security guards at a military factory in central Ukraine for reasons unknown, killing five people and wounding five others before fleeing.

Police later captured the suspect in the town of Pidgorodne outside of Dnipro.

Interior Minister Denys Monastyrskiy named the soldier as Artem Ryabchuk and said he would “bear the strictest responsibility provided by law”.

Monastyrskiy added the five wounded people were receiving medical treatment and “doctors are fighting to save their lives”.

Yuzhmash is an aerospace factory that produces and tests material related to defence, aeronautics and agriculture, according to its website.

He said investigators would look into how the soldier passed a medical commission that allowed him access to weapons.

The Russian military has been amassing troops near the country’s border with Ukraine, and NATO members have accused Russia of planning an invasion of the country. »
