 Russian invaders from 22nd brigade of GRU awarded medals for Donbas, - InformNapalm. PHOTOS

It’s been almost two years since the start of the military campaign that began with seizing of Crimea and subsequent stirring of the conflict in the Donbas. At the beginning of their “tour of duty,” Russian military were openly and pathetically posing against Ukrainian border and road signs, but now similar photographs are scarce. However, many occupants still cannot help but boast their war decorations received in peace time.

This is announced in another investigation conducted by international volunteer community InformNapalm, Censor.NET informs.

"One of the examples is uncovered Sergey Medvedev - contract soldier of the 22nd separate special mission brigade of Russia's GRU (military unit 11659, Rostov oblast)," the article reads.

Personal data: Sergey Olegovich Medvedev (archived profile, albums, contacts). Born in 1993 in Kurganny village, Rostov oblast. Served in regular Russian army between 2012 and 2013. Medvedev has served as contract soldier of the 22nd separate special mission brigade of Russia's GRU since 2014. His parents live in Kurganny village, while his sister Elena Severchenko resides in Rostov-on-Don.

Usually, InformNapalm does not disclose personal information of Russian servicemen's relatives, but in this case it is worth to note boastful mother and sister of Medvedev about his decoration.
