 Russia’s invaders from 6th Tank Brigade in Donbas. PHOTOS

The investigation proves the fact of the 6th brigade’s (Central Military District, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia) tankmen participation in fights in the Donbas.

Censor.NET reports that the article by Informnapalm contains the identification of the Russian servicemen who went through the 'Ukrainian tour of duty' and the reconstruction of their 'war path' chronology.

Informnapalm investigators have already covered this topic in their previous stories, which were based on the photo and video proofs and on the information from the online profiles of the servicemen of military unit No. 54096 (Central Military District, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia).

All the persons mentioned below are linked to the tactical group of the 6th tank brigade which consists of the tankmen and scouts with clear signs of the 'Ukrainian assignment' participation - the typical masquerade with imitation of the 'Novorossiya' militants (informal clothes, white arm bandages), and the equipment with typical identification signs (in this case the white circles on T72-B3 tanks). Most of the investigated persons uploaded photos with the 'tour of duty to Donbas, 2014′ comments in their online profiles a year later, in 2015. But some of them uploaded such photos in real time mode which allowed us to clear and confirm the previously known details.

The servicemen who had the 'Ukrainian assignment' did not often specify the military unit number in their profiles and that made some readers doubt. And the indirect evidence were not convincing for those who did not want to dig into the issue. That is why we start this investigation with a video from the Russian TVC TV channel, filmed in the 6th tank brigade in Nizhny Novgorod in February, 2014. Here you can recognize our first character, Evgeny Rassadin, a tankman from this military unit.

Here is a part of the TVC story: "Evgeny Rassadin is upset: another racing again resulted in no medals. But the sportsmen of the national team are still the reference for him. When I see how they cross the finish line, and take the 1st, 2nd or 3rd place - I am excited. I want to do that too. - explains Evgeny Rassadin, a driver mechanic". And Darya Ivanova, the reporter, notices that he has all the chances. She is not mistaken since Evgeny is sent to a 'tank biathlon' in Donbas during the summer campaign. Let's start with him.

Besides that, in Vilkov's album we identified Sergei Gradov (Yakushev), another already disclosed Russian soldier. But we should say that Gradov-Yakushev was mentioned as a scout of the 9th motorized rifle brigade from Nizhny Novgorod, and now it appeared that he was the scout of the 6th brigade from the same city. This does not change the fact of his following the illegal orders in Donbas.

It should be noted that not all the servicemen of the 6th tank brigade reached the finish line in the 'tank biathlon' in Donbas. Some of them were 'disqualified' (captured by the Ukrainian army), some were sent home as the 'cargo-200'.
