Hacktivists of the Ukrainian Cyber Alliance and volunteers of InformNapalm, have compiled and prepared for publication the data of almost 1,500 members of the illegal armed groups (IAGs) operating in the occupied territory of Ukraine. This is a list of servicemen of the 3rd Motorized Rifle Brigade (MRB) of the 1st Army Corps (Donetsk) of the Russian occupation army in the Ukrainian Donbas. All the extracted and processed data were immediately transferred to the relevant law enforcement agencies of Ukraine.
The analysis of the list once again demonstrates the hybrid nature of the Russian aggression: the 3rd MRB includes Russian active military personnel, Russian mercenaries, as well as local collaborators who are used as cannon fodder.
Here are some screenshots from the document, the entire list can be found under this link.
