The article is based on pictures "donated" to volunteer investigators by a representative of the Russian military-industrial complex. The pictures evidence the participation of the Russia’s 200th Separate Mechanized Rifle Brigade in the battles in the Donbas in summer-fall of 2014.

Censor.NET reports citing the open source investigation carried out by the InformNapalm international volunteers' community.

Volunteers came across a profile of Mikhail Boyurov in Vkontakte Russian social network, who Dec. 10, 2015 uploaded photos taken in Aug. - Sept. 2014 during his "trip to Ukraine". Judging from his photo album, he and other experts of the 775th Artillery Repair Plant of the Russian Defense Ministry were sent to the war zone to carry out maintenance of military equipment and weapons on the ground.

"Equipment from Mikhail Boyurov's photo album is standard hardware of the 200th Special Designation Separate Mechanized Rifle Brigade of the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy (military base No. 08275 located in the village of Pechenga in the Murmansk region). According to available information, the battalion task force of this brigade was in the "Rostov-Ukraine tour of duty" as of Sept. 2014

"InformNapalm published several articles in Nov. 2014 evidencing participation of the mentioned detachment's task force in battles in the Donbas, including evidence of shelling of the Ukrainian troops' positions by its missile artillery squadron that was invading the territory of Ukraine to conduct artillery strikes. This battalion task force is also best remembered for its "creativity", in particular for its military equipment with painted Soviet Union-style slogans, ..., which allowed volunteers to determine its identity (as well as the type, tactical signs, and side numbers) with the help of pictures posted by Mikhail Boyurov," the authors of the article informed.

The pictures from Mikhail Boyurov's photo album dated and uploaded Aug. 14, 2014: Izvaryne border crossing point on the state border between Ukraine and the Russian Federation (including geotagging) (archives 1, 2).
