 Four Russian soldiers from Kalmykia "got lost" in Donbas steppes, - InformNapalm. PHOTOS

Russian soldiers from the 7th Military Base of the 49th Army (Southern Military District of Russia, deployed in Abkhazia, Georgia) have been spotted in the Donbas.

Censor.NET reports citing InformNapalm international volunteer investigative community.

"Kalmyks, who serve in the Russian imperial troops, probably confused the Donbas steppes with their native vast lands," the authors of the article wrote.

The new OSINT investigation presents four comrades from the Reconnaissance Battalion of the 7th Military Base spotted on a "Ukrainian mission - 2015". They have been identified through analysis of information and photos of the subjects of our previous investigations. For example:
  • a photo of Sergey Finogin (Ilya Kuznetsov), a contract soldier from the same military unit, who, being in summer of 2016 on a combat mission in occupied Horlivka, was photographed recklessly with a local bull terrier and posted in social media;
  • analysis of social media accounts of eight scouts of 7th Military Base who fought in Ukraine.
"On the background of the group photo of the servicemen from the 7th Military Base, dressed in non-statutory "gorka" uniform (popular outfit among "rebellious miners" in 2014-2015), abandoned buildings can be seen. The terrain and the type of the buildings in the picture do not match the mountainous terrain of Abkhazia. The terrain in the photo looks more like a steppe landscape on the Russian-Ukrainian border in the vicinity of Izvaryne. We saw similar landscape in the Donbas trip photo report of the Russian maintainer Mikhail Boyurov, who compromised not only himself, but also a tactical group of the 200th Brigade from the Russian Northern Fleet," the article reads.

At first glance, Zhumarystanov's photo albums are inconspicuous. Except for they contain a photo from the "Ukrainian mission" period, which was previously presented by an OSINT-investigator Al Gri (whose investigations have been also published on the InformNapalm website). In addition, Zhumarystanov was identified in the group photo of scouts from the 7th Military Base that was taken during the "Ukrainian mission - 2015" period somewhere in the same area, judging by the ruined buildings.
