A Thief is a Thief but This Has Upset Russia…

I get upset at incidents like this. A tragic happening and the men who are suppose to be helping control a terrible situation, have nothing better to do than steal from deceased people.

It seems that credit cards of the deceased people were stolen by four soldiers who were at the scene to make sure that it was secure. Russia’s first response was, Nope – It did not happen…

The Russian prosecutor’s investigations office said four Russian soldiers had been charged with “theft carried out by a group with premeditation”, according to state media.

Three of the four soldiers had previous criminal convictions, including robbery and counterfeiting, the prosecutor’s office said.

The soldiers have already admitted their involvement, a spokesman was quoted by Itar-Tass and Ekho Moskvy as saying. The Russian reports said the sum stolen was more than 60,000 roubles (£1,300).

I do not blame Russia for her first response because the desire to keep things under control until the truth is evaluated, is normal.

I initially said to myself, What were former criminals doing in the Army? Then I allowed my memories to return about who I was enlisted with in America, back in the old days. The army was a place for many that had no future at the hometown. In Russia they still have the draft so you take all that comes…

So I will not continue on that theme but I will say, The men that stole the credit card should be punished heavily and due to the sensitivity of the situation that was at hand at the Polish Presidents Plane Crash, it makes their crime even morally and politically wrong…

Windows to Russia!
