Phnom Penh : A Russian man was shot in front of his house by a gunman while opening his car door for some Russian compatriots who had been travelling with him. The Russian had just arrived home in his car when he was shot in the left forearm by a bullet that pierced through his forearm and lodged into his right thigh. The incident occurred just past midnight, at 12:15am on the morning of the 26th of November, 2012, in front of House 2, Street 830 (by the You Khin House), Tonle Bassac Commune, Chamcormon District.

The victim has been identified as ‘KOSTENKO KONSTANTIN,’ a 42 year old Russian national, who had entered Cambodia on a tourist visa and had taken residence in a rented house in front of which the above mention incident occurred. He had been driving an off white color Toyota Highlander with a temporary license number (pasted on its rear window). The Highlander had 3 female Russian passengers aboard and was bespattered with mud when he arrived home and got out of his car. There he was suddenly confronted by 6 people mounted on 2 motos (one a 125cc Honda Dream, the other unidentified), one of whom pulled out a gun and fired a shot that hit the Russian man in the forearm and thigh, before all fled the scene.

After the shooting, 3 female passengers transported the victim to the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital. Regarding the motive for the shooting, some have speculated it to be an attempted car-jacking, while others have seen it as a case of revenge.

A gunman firing on a foreigner for reasons apart from armed robbery is extremely uncommon in Cambodia. In this case, apparently, the shooting party fled the scene after thinking they had killed their fallen victim, which has led to off the record speculation that the shooting was targeted.

Car jacking my arse.

The Russian has obviously upset someone.

Does anybody remember that Finn from the awful band 'Bum N Draze' who started playing around with a Khmer guy's girlfriend. Well. he woke up one morning to find that his Mercedes had rather a lot of bullet holes in it.

The motive was mentioned in the PPP version of the incident yesterday. According to police, the Russian 'brushed' the bikes on his way home from a night club at 1.30 am. They followed him to his house and shot him. Posters on the other thread boasting of kicking Khmers' bikes take note.

And the lesson to be learned is this: next time you brush some little fucker's bike at 1.30am, make sure you knock the c*nt and all his friends off their bikes. And then reverse over them.

Having said that, the Russians were probably shit-faced drunk and we all know how Russians drive at 1.30am.

No, I don't think every shit-faced Russian driving badly at 1.30am deserves to be shot, but I'm not an armed Khmer freshie boy so my vote doesn't count.

:thumbsup:

I don't know if the 'take note' was directed at me, but consider this:

1. If you damage a Khmer's bike, be prepared to pay. Both they and we understand this.

2. If a Khmer damages our bike, they should be prepared to pay: both they and we understand this.

3. Anyone who tolerates someone damaging their private property - be they Khmer or foreigners -is a pussy and is instantly relegated to the Loser Section.

4. No-one in their right minds would damage others property, unprovoked, without expecting a reaction.

I may not be young any more, but anyone who damages my property first , and without provocation, can expect consequences.

Just saying.

It's soldiers and police who can't shoot straight. Untrained bong thoms never seem to have that problem.
Ain't nobody got time for that!

Untrained soldiers and police fire warning shots into the air and manage to miss.

So now playing the game of spot which posters didn't read the PPP, it seems I'm top of the list.
