"Pavlov Vitaliy Vladimirovich, (https://vk.com/id98211592), commander of the 3rd gun crew of the 6th carriage motor howitzer (SPG Msta-S 2S19) of the self-propelled artillery battalion of the 19th Independent Motor Rifle Brigade (military unit 20634, Vladikavkaz, North Ossetia, Alania) of the Southern Military District of RF, rewarded with the Medal of Suvorov. "
The honors list number 41831 dated Dec. 25, 2014 was signed by the Commander-in-chief -Russian President Putin.
There are no doubts that Pavlov was rewarded exactly for Russian gamble in Ukraine, which is indirectly proven by photo facts:
- Medal of Suvorov and adjoining comments. This medal is a state reward and is not given for nothing. The Medal is offered to servicemen for personal courage and bravery demonstrated during defense of the Fatherland or military actions defending state interests of the RF.
Moreover, a photo of rewarded Pavlov is exhibited as a billboard in the place of dislocation of the 19th Independent Motor Rifle Brigade in Vladikavkaz.
- There are photos In Pavlov's photo album with which one can trace his "fighting way" to Donbas in August-October 2014, starting with a 2S19 Msta loading on a train up to field weekday routine, where Pavlov poses with "comrades-in-arms" draped in "flora" camouflage, in which Russian headquarters dress its servicemen redeployed to Ukraine, which is done to mask them as rebels-volunteers.
- Additional attention should be paid to another Pavlov's photo, posted on Sept. 22, with quite familiar contrails from Donbas plains, dated Sept. 20 - "Magic circles in skies over Donbas."
