 Russian invader Artur Bagavov exposes Russia’s 7th military base soldiers on ‘Ukrainian tour of duty’. PHOTOS

The Russian career soldiers involved in the Donbas invasion try to avoid further service in the districts and detachments most often send on ‘Ukrainian tours of duty’.

Censor.NET reports citing the open source investigation carried out by the activists of the InformNapalm international volunteer community.

InformNapalm investigators found an interesting picture posted on the page of a certain Artur Arsenov back in October 2014. The image showed two soldiers sitting atop a speeding BTR-80 armored personnel carrier with a load attached to its hull. The comment to the photo reads: heading for Ukr

Based on the analysis of the pictures posted by Bagavov and a number of comments to them, he was a member of the battalion task force of the 7th military base deployed at Ashuluk military training area in the Astrakhan oblast since late spring 2014. This combined unit was first redeployed to the Rostov oblast and later to Ukraine.

Bagavov quit the army in late September or early October 2014. He most likely terminated the contract out of fear of being sent to the Donbas on another "tour of duty". InformNapalm previously published a lot of articles about high personnel turnover and mass termination of contracts at the 7th occupation base of the Russian Armed Forces.
