According to sources in the National Guard, the deceased guy’s name is Vadim Bondarenko, he comes from the Cherkasy region and has been serving in the military since the beginning of the war.
According to the Dejure Foundation think-tank, Tandyr had previously helped defend his colleague in the case of causing an accident. In particular, in 2021, he helped the judge of the Kyiv-Svyatoshinsky District Court Dmitry Usatov avoid liability under Art. 124 CUAO (causing an accident). And according to Art. 130 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (drunken driving) Usatov was dismissed by the judge of the Pechersk District Court Oleg Belotserkovets, because he closed the case on time.
