We continue to identify and publish information about Russian war criminals who took part in the special operation to seize Crimea in February-March 2014. Today we present the names of four soldiers from the 7057th Air Base of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Armed Forces (military unit 49311 based in the village of Kacha in temporarily occupied Crimea), who took part in the military aggression against Ukraine. It should be noted that all the personnel of the air base were involved in the special operation and later awarded medals.
Information about the Russian occupiers
Sergei Sergeevich Chaikin (Russian: Сергей Сергеевич Чайкин), born on April 1, 1995, in Verhnocherensky village, Volgograd Oblast of the Russian Federation.
He was called up for military service in June 2013.
He maintains his account on the Russian social media website Odnoklassniki under the nickname Prosto Seryoga but his full name is shown in the award certificate for the medal for the occupation of Crimea:
The award certificate was signed by the commander of the 7057th Air Base, Colonel Anatoly Stepanov. We wrote about him and his brother (a former serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine) in the first investigation into the participation of servicemen of this air base in the aggression against Ukraine

Vasily Sergeevich Komarov (Russian: Василий Сергеевич Комаров ), born on December 11, 1990. He is a comrade in arms of Sergei Chaikin. He also posted a photo with a medal for the occupation of Crimea.
He has two accounts on Odnoklassniki website. On one of them he indicated his place of residence as the city of Taganrog, on the other as the village of Matveev Kurgan. Both places are in Rostov Oblast of Russia. A car from Vasily’s photo album has a license plate issued in Rostov Oblast.

Another comrade in arms of Sergey Chaikin has an account on the Russian social media website Odnoklassniki under the nickname ALEKSANDR KING. He also posted a photo with a medal for the occupation of Crimea.
The account has been inactive since 2011, but in the Family section there is a link to mother’s account which confirms our finding. This account gave us the real name of the Russian occupier: Aleksandr Petrov (Russian: Александр Петров), born on September 14, 1994, probably from Labinsk, Russia.
