Here is a photo of a memorial to servicemen of the 17th Motor Rifle Brigade, located in the town of Shali, Chechen Republic, Russia. Nine out of ten “died in the line of duty” in Ukraine in August, 2014.
We have mentioned some of the names that are listed on the memorial before – Kuzmin, Larionov, Araptanov and Ivanov. I wrote about them in August and September of last year.

Based on the fact that January of 2015 was much “busier” than August of 2014, soon we can expect to see many more similar photographs from different regions of the Russian Federation with tens of names of Russian servicemen killed in Ukraine.
