On January 11, 2002, a group of Russian servicemen led by Captain Eduard Ulman was searching a region in Chechnya for the notorious separatist warlord Khattab.
The military patrol was approached by a truck that failed to obey an order to stop. The patrol opened fire on the truck.
No arms were found in the truck, which contained just six civilians from a nearby village, one of whom was killed and two whom were wounded when the soldiers opened fire.
