We analyse new results of CHANDRA and SUZAKU which found a flux of hard X-ray emission from the compact region around Sgr A* (r∼ 100 pc). We propose that this emission is a consequence of a special transient accretion process when a part of captured star obtains an additional angular momentum. As a result a flux of subrelativistic protons is ejected from the Galactic black hole, which heats up the background plasma in the Galactic center up to temperature about 6-10 keV and produces by inverse bremsstrahlung a flux of non-thermal X-ray emission in the energy range above 10 keV.
