As you may recall, on November 6 the team of “Inform Napalm” published the video message of Evgeniy Tur, the sergeant of Russian military unit 30616-6 of the 523 Guards Training Motorized Rifle Regiment. (More information is here: https://burkonews.info/russian-army-sergeant-captured-ukraine-video/)
The video, titled “I’m in Slovyansk!!!”, was posted by Evgeniy Tur on November, 5, at approximately 12:30 on the social network site VKontakte (https://vk.com/id106286824).
Our publication has received a wide public resonance, and the video from the page of the Russian sergeant was promptly spread by domestic and foreign media, but some gave to it more connotation of scandal, calling the video “A Russian soldier addresses Putin.» This was caused by questionable reporting by some media outlets, and not by our channel. In the video the sergeant did not speak to Putin, only answering the questions of a man behind the scene.
In the video background is the Slavyansk railway station. This fact doesn’t leave any chances for the Russian propaganda to claim that there are no the Russian military in Ukraine. However, it used a more sophisticated move, calling this sergeant an ‘actor’ and his page a fake.
By the way, some trolls insisted that the video was «fake» since behind the sergeant the sign «Slavyanskiy», not «Slavyansk” appeared in the distance. Let us explain for heavy minded:» the city is Slavyansk «,» the station is Slavyanskiy »
Let’s consider some additional facts now:
Let’s take a look at the page of the sergeant in the Vkontakte social network. No, we’re not interested in what he, or someone else on his behalf, writes. We are interested in what others write about him:
Following comments on the post and the video. The first two comments to the video:
Fedor Konuykhov: [email protected] disaster!!!! Just seen!! Elena Didenko: Shit! Zhen’, take it easy there, you were set up skillfully…
Checking the pages of users:
Fedor Konuykhov (http://vk.com/id24373052)
Elena Didenko (http://vk.com/enka_penka)
Both pages belong to the people from the city of Vladimir. According to their comments, they know Evgeniy personally. The pages are real.
The comments to the post:
Mikhail Novikov (http://vk.com/mike_angel) also from Vladimir. He claims to be personally acquainted with Eugeniy:
— Тhe only thing is it’s not him writing this)
— Anton, as opposed to you I know him
The page of this user is real too. The first post is on January 12, 2009.
Moving on. It’s becoming more and more interesting. Here is another comment by Anatoly Mayorov
- Anton, no need to distort the reality… I know Tur very well… Been working with him more than a year… I heard that he planned to reach the Crimea in a tank – chasing some money… As for slaves… So you are also a slave and so what…

Here’s Anatoli himself.
But that is just for starters. There’s still more.
We have the personnel list from the military unit, where Evgeniy Tur served (listed as no. 22):
We decided to go through this list and find his colleagues in social networks. Here are some of them:
1. Egor Karelin (https://vk.com/senninha)
- Mikhail Vasiliev (https://vk.com/id13178578)
3. Viktor Kochnev (https://vk.com/id18087663)
4. Dmitriy Zveznenkov (https://vk.com/id24781759)
5. Rustam Aliskenderov (https://vk.com/id45863494)
6. Evgeniy Arbuzov (https://vk.com/id63647228). By the way, he reposted the video from the page of Evgeniy Tur:
7. Mikhail Sadkov (https://vk.com/id133400159)
- Mikhail Vrublevskiy (https://vk.com/id154964979)
9. Zeinitdin Aliev (https://vk.com/sershant94):
10. Mahamed Bagandov (https://vk.com/rbagandov)
11. Anatoli Ivanov (https://vk.com/id240481444)
12. Evgeniy Pozdeev (https://vk.com/id247619503)
During our investigation we made a sociological study as well, which pointed out that the motto of the Russian soldiers is, “Leave your friend in trouble and in any unclear situation, hide your head in the sand». To our direct question «Do you know Evgeniy Tur?» only Rasul answered that he knows him. The others tried to deny it, although Arbuzov reposted the video of Evgeniy in Slavyansk later.
It is noteworthy that while the Russian Federation awards the terrorists with various diplomas and medals in Donbas, the imprisoned or killed military personnel remain hidden from public, their existence denied both by the official propaganda and small-time trolls.
Well, doesn’t the homeland need the active duty sergeant of the Russian armed forces Evgeniy Tur? According to the Russian canons he is not in Ukraine, therefore there’s nothing to be done about it. Russian soldiers, remember, you are only tools, brainless meat for your motherland, which won’t give even a sixpence for you…
Evgeniy was lucky. He was captured by ‘ukrops’ (Ukrainians), he can now drink coffee and reason that he should’ve “listened to his mom”. But some of his teammates were less fortunate — they become fertilizer for the rich Ukrainian soil.
You always have a choice…
