"According to the social network profile's information (personal data, photos, contacts, and geotags) of the Russian military from the 99th brigade for logistical support Alexey Chikhuta, his subdivision from Maykop checked in at the Oktiabrskiy and Kamenskiy districts of the Rostov region and at the Donbas Arena stadium of Donetsk as well. Most of slides were uploaded in early April, the images supposedly show events of the last two months," Komakhidze says.
The material shown confirms earlier information that the subdivision of the 99th brigade together with other Russian logistical units is actively involved in transportation of military cargo to the Donbas.
Reference: the 99thseparate brigade for logistical support of the 49th combined arms army of the South military district - military unit #72153, Maykop city, Adygea, was formed in the end of 2010, possibly consisting of:
- 474th motor battalion (military unit #33027, the Rostov region, Millerovo);
- 293rd separate motor battalion (military unit #46027, the Rostovy region, Novocherkassk);
- 76th separate repair and reconstruction battalion (complex repair; military unit #23286, Krasnodarskiy Kray, Slaviansk-na-Kubani city);
- 35th separate water delivery motor company (military unit #83110, Adygea, Maykop city);
-132nd separate refueling company (military unit #85945, Adygea, Maykop city).
The brigade's main tasks are logistical and rear provision of military compounds and military units of the 49th army. It also includes organization of transportation of equipment, weapons and ammunition; provision of timely replenishment of costs and loss of reserves of material resources; replenishment of weapons and military equipment; organization of nutrition and bath and laundry service; water supply, etc.
"Suggested that the 99th logistical brigade conducts logistical and rear support of military formations and military units, it is logical to search for this army in the Donetsk region," one of commentators notes.
