OSINT investigators have revealed a “double-jobber” military from the 22nd Special Purpose Brigade of Russian GRU Maxim Apanasov, who served both in the Russian army and the “Donetsk People’s Republic” “Spetsnaz GRU.”

This was announced by InformNapalm volunteer community, Censor.NET reports.

The 22nd Special Purpose Brigade of the Russian GRU has been featured in InformNapalm investigations several times. Now another "double-jobber" has been identified among its servicemen. The volunteers found a social media account of some Maxim Palestin, and managed to disclose more information about him.

One of the most recently uploaded images (February 2017) is probably a sign of nostalgia: it shows Apanasov on an IFV in November 2014 at Debaltseve, the Donetsk region.
