CCTV footage has emerged showing the captain of a Russian submarine making his final flight before being shot down, allegedly in retaliation for a missile attack on Ukraine.
Stanislav Rzicki, 42, was seen racing but was adopted by a mysterious bike owner in Krasnodar, Russia, just minutes before he died on the spot after being shot up to seven times.
Russian law enforcement officials said he was shot on Ukrainian orders and rushed to arrest the alleged suspect, Ukrainian-born judo coach Sergei Denisenko, 64, a father of six.
It happened after the Rytskyi submarine fired Kalibr missiles at the city of Vinnytsia, Ukraine, killing up to 27 civilians.
According to Baza, a Russian Telegram channel with hyperlinks to security companies, the killer may have been tracking Rzhitsky’s activities on the health app Strava, where he posted information about their shared operation route.

Friends of the detained man claimed he was framed as part of the photo op, and various theories emerged about the death of the submarine captain.
“His friends and colleagues do not believe in his participation in the crime,” the VChK-OGPU Telegram channel reported.
The location could be an “extremely strange place” for the Ukrainian assassin to kill his Russian target, the channel said.
The killer then fled to a trolleybus stop off Kubanskaya Embankment, about 350 meters from the shooting location.
“The stop is located in front of the gates of the Krasnodar branch of the Alfa special forces unit,” the channel said.
“The murder almost happened… at the FSB special forces centre. They often run there, train in this park.

The cyclist who allegedly followed the captain of the submarine is not Denisenko.
When war broke out, Denisenko fled to Switzerland with his wife and two young children.
He then returned to Ukraine and repaired his ruined house. After that he came to see his eldest son in Russia.
“Relatives note that Sergej was positive all the time and was talking to his family on the phone,” the report said.
“Despite his anti-war stance, he was not an activist and intended to develop his favorite sport.” Before the battle, he headed the Ukrainian Shotokan Karate Federation.
While his rented apartment, where he was grounded in his underwear, contained a gun and silencers, his friends say he had no knowledge of firearms.

Major General Kirill Budanov denied that his brokers were responsible for the murder in Krasnodar, instead blaming Putin’s domestic anti-war enemies of Russia.
He claimed to have been photographed by a Russian-Russian. “We know that the roots of what happened yesterday in the Russian Federation are in Russia itself, where the internal protest against the war in Ukraine is growing,” he said.
Since Rzhitskyi had left the fleet before the fighting, it seems that a motive for the murder of the Ukrainians is missing.
Captain Anatoly Varochkin, 56, was in command of the submarine on July 14, 2022, when missiles killed tragic little Liza Dmitrieva, 4, and 26 others in a devastating attack from the Black Sea. He is now Deputy Chief of Staff of the Black Sea Fleet.
