 Terrorist ‘Potemkin’ ‘flashes’ Russian invaders’ base in Makiivka. PHOTOS

Volunteers have revealed coordinates of another Russian military base in the occupied Donbas via photographs by Russian militant with call sign ‘Potemkin.’

This is reported by volunteer community InformNapalm, Censor.NET informs.

""Identification of a location by using photos and videos is a complex and time-consuming process; identifying a location by an image from inside a building, which is not so popular, with images not being made there every day, is many times more complex, until you have another detail to hint on identification. Here are several images posted on social media by various Russian militants at different time," the authors of the investigation write.

Images show that the premises are the same. The last three pictures show different angles of the same T-64AK tank, which is well-known on the Internet for being covered with various signs. (On the right - "For the Donbas," on the left - "For Mospino," on the tube on the right "For granddaughter Mashenka," on the left - "Mospino to Kyiv.")

The premises are spacious, half-empty, with a high ceiling; for natural lighting, four rows of windows are located on the roof.

On the image below, each row of the windows is marked with different color. The same colors will be used for them below on an image by Yandex map.

In May 2015 InformNapalm volunteers started to watch Zakharov Viktor Robertovich, leading singer of Russian band "Neizvestnaya zemlya" (Unknown Land), coming from Yaroslavl, Russia. His band nickname was 'Zakhar Potemkin,' and his Donbas call sign is 'Stalingrad.'

Then, 'Zakhar Potemkin' showed a military base with various equipment, artillery, and lots of ammunition in Antratsyt city (the Donetsk region), which base was constructed on the territory of former 2nd platoon of mine rescue brigade. After a vacation spent home in Russia, Russian militant 'Zakhar Potemkin' has returned to the Donbas and continues to reveal Russian bases filled with heavy armament (tanks and SAU) and tons of ammunition.

Video titled "Stocking of ammo" dated March 19, 2016 with commentaries and an interesting dialogue showing how much ammunition is there:

His commentary reads that he was unloading ammunition all day long. Below is translation of a dialogue in comments:
Roman Bespalov
- Zakhar, spies would make use of you.
Zakhar Potemkin
- Roman, who? … You think, there is someone there guarding it? No one gives a damn there. All you need to do is to load. The more the better. One Ukrop (Ukrainian - ed.) missile - and the village where the base is will be gone.
Roman Bespalov
- Zakhar, is there the front line there?
Zakhar Potemkin
- Roman, I didn't get about the front line… They are shooting in Zaitseve and Yasynuvata, as well as in Spartak. All ammunition storages are in dozens of kilometers from the front line. They will not get it. With aviation only, which they do not have :))

Two videos dated April 3, 2016: "Zakhar Potemkin. "DPR" 2016. Morning guard. Breakfast" and "Zakhar Potemkin. "DPR." Morning guard. Sunday, April 3." Below are some stills from the video, showing SAU and many trucks.

The building on these two videos does not resemble the one from the images at the beginning of the articles and requires additional identification.

It turned out that Yandex has renewed its maps and it shows more than 25 units of military tented trucks. On the neighboring territory ('DAR' car market), piles of ammunition were recorded as well.

In order to understand when the image on Yandex cards was made, the investigators have looked through the history of images on Google maps. During 2014, fewer and fewer cars were recorded on the territory of DAR market. On an image dated Oct. 6, 2014, the territory was completely empty.

Here is an image of April 18, 2014, when there were many cars on the market.

The last image of Feb. 21, 2015, shows empty territory.

Upon the most recent check-up of Google maps it turned out that a new image has appeared. It is dated April 13, 2015. It shows various military equipment. This date could be considered as a beginning of construction and redeployment of Russian terrorist troops here.
