An interesting character with a rare insignia came to light in one of the February broadcasts of “Komsomolskaya Pravda” from the town of Vuhlehirsk in the Donbas combat zone. He wears a patch from Alpha Group of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB).
Directorate “A” of the FSB Special Purpose Center can be involved in special operations of specific and higher complexity. They also act in “hot spots”, including Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia and, as we see in this particular case, Ukraine.
Of course, skeptics can claim that those are “coal miners” who adorn themselves with specific insignias of Russian Special Forces. However, an example of a former “defense minister of the DPR” Igor Girkin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Igor_Girkin), colonel of the FSB, shows that the “coal miners” from Russia are not merely “simple volunteers”.
We hope that facial hair of the person caught on camera will not prevent his recognition and identification. Please send us any information about him using email or just add as a comment.
Together we will win.
