President sets up commission to probe road accident with Ukrainian servicemen


The military prosecutor’s office and a specially created presidential commission will investigate a road accident that killed 13 National Guard servicemen.
Anti-terrorist operation (ATO) spokesman Andriy Lysenko said this at a briefing on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“The military prosecutor’s office is investigating the tragedy, and a special commission has been created on the instruction of the Ukrainian president,” Lysenko said.
According to him, 12 National Guard soldiers were killed in the accident, and 21 more sustained various injuries.
“All those seriously wounded, and these are 14 people, have already been taken to the Kharkiv military hospital. The president personally took control of this issue. In the near future seven other soldiers will be transferred there from Artemivsk,” Lysenko said.
He added that the fatal road accident involving two trucks and a bus with National Guard soldiers occurred at nighttime in bad weather (slippery road). “While the investigation is underway, scenarios about the causes of the accident are being considered only in working order,” Lysenko said.
