Friends of the deceased say that he suffered from epilepsy and stuttered a lot - sometimes it was difficult to understand what he was saying. Boris himself volunteered for the army several times.
Until recently, 29-year-old Boris Glushak from the village of Shirjeve in the Odessa region made extra money at the local bazaar. He took up any job, writes the newspaper "Express".
"I've known Boris since I was born," says Mrs. Maria (name changed at the request of the interlocutor), a resident of Shiryaevo, an employee of the bazaar ... all his life he grew up alone - without proper care and upbringing. Grew up, went to work part-time at the local market. I know that later he even moved to Grandma's house. Boris seems to have had four older brothers, but he didn't get along very well with them.
I can't say a bad word about Borya! He didn't steal anything, he earned his bread with his own hands. Every day he would come and ask: "How are you, how are you, how can I help you?". In addition to working part-time at the supermarket, he repaired push-button telephones and tape recorders – he was a specialist. Yes, he sometimes drank alcohol, but I wouldn't call him an alcoholic."
Oleksandr Norenko, the market guard, says that Boris “hanged around” there almost all the time.
"Sometimes I would unload something in the meat department, then help someone carry a basket of vegetables", says the man.
Locals claim that Boris was taken to the Military Commissariat directly from the bazaar.
“Borya must have had health problems”, says another local woman. “He has stuttered since childhood, but recently so much that it was difficult to understand what he was saying at all. He shook his head too. He also had seizures. I don't understand how they could deliver the summons to him. Apparently, the Military Commissariat thought: Boris is from a poor family, so who will care about him. But people revolted because of his death."
And the locals wonder how Boris could be registered at the Military Commissariat? They say he didn't even have a passport.
"But what can I say - we have a real lawlessness here" - Maria is indignant. “Last year, a summons was issued for a guy with mental disorders, then he came home and hanged himself ... And in the spring of this year, in the neighboring village, TCK employees took the patient away. In addition, they beat him, and on the way to the Military Commissariat he died in the car. Why do they take people like Borka? It's simple - because money! The majors are slandered and people like him, sick and helpless, are taken in their place."
