In this feature, InformNapalm volunteer intelligence community presents personal data of 10 more servicemen from the 234th Air Assault Regiment (234th AAR) of Russian army, who participated in the seizure of Crimea. This information will be useful for future lawsuits against Russia, as well as for the imposition of personal sanctions against the servicemen of the aggressor country.
The 234th Air Assault Regiment, military unit #74268, stationed in the city of Pskov, is part of the 76th Guards Air Assault Division, Western Military District of the Russian Armed Forces. We have previously published information about the participation of the soldiers from this unit in the war against Ukraine (Crimea, Donbas) and Georgia. Today we are naming ten more Russian war criminals.
The first of them is a foreshadow of the future of Russian politics, since he has political ambitions and has already joined the United Russia party.

After demobilization in 2014, he served in a separate battalion of patrol police in Lipetsk city. Since 2015, he has been employed at the Novolipetsk Metallurgical Plant as crane operator. In 2016 he joined the United Russia party. He is also a member of the Youth Government of his region. He published the photo of the newspaper article with his interview, where he spoke of his intention to run for a seat in the city council. Also, the article states that A. Vasilyev was awarded the Medal For Distinction in Combat. We believe that he received this award for taking part in combat operations in Ukrainian Donbas.

Skladchikov is on the left
On VK social network, Skladchikov posted a video taken from the train driver cab at Dolbino station in Belgorod Oblast, 21 km away from the border with Ukraine. Although the video was published in November 2014, it is clear that the footage had been taken in spring or summer. The video features a train with military equipment. InformNapalm has established the unit operating the pictured equipment. It is the 4th company, the 51st Airborne Regiment, the 106th Airborne Division, military unit 33842, stationed in Tula, Russian Federation. The video recorded numerous BMD-2 airborne infantry fighting vehicles with side numbers 541-549, BTR-D armored personnel carriers and Nona-S self-propelled mortars.

In his VK account, Gaydin posted a video of his return home, where he and other servicemen were recorded with medals for occupying Crimea.
Also in Gaidin’s account there is a video of oath taking by the recruits of 76th Air Assault Division. Paratroopers of this division participated in the aggression against Ukraine in Crimea and in Donbas, and this video will be an important piece of court evidence to identify war criminals.

InformNapalm volunteers continue identification of Russian servicemen, who participated in the aggression against Ukraine and other countries. The results of our research show that soldiers of the 234th AAR participated in all conflicts sparkled by Russia in the post-Soviet space.
In some cases, those who executed criminal orders go into politics to further the aggressive policies of their state. Identification of each of them is important both for future legal cases and for the introduction of personal sanctions against the occupiers.
All the units of the Russian Armed Forces and other uniformed services, which participated in the aggression against Ukraine, Georgia and Syria and have been positively identified by the InformNapalm volunteers, are cataloged in our Russian Aggression database.
