Volunteers of InformNapalm international intelligence community analyzed personal data of the Russian servicemen of the 417th Separate Reconnaissance Battalion of the 42nd Motorized rifle Division (MRD) of the 58th Army of the Southern Military District of the Russian Armed Forces (see our previous publication dated March 4, 2022). Our findings revealed interesting details regarding the subject No. 243 – a paramedic of the battalion medical station, Sergeant Artur Sekret.
In particular, we found a close connection between this Russian military man and Ukraine. It was established that in 2014, against the backdrop of the Russian aggression in Crimea and the Donbas, the couple Artur and Kateryna Sekret decided to leave Ukraine for Vladikavkaz, Russia, the city of residence of Katerina’s mother Svetlana Kravtsova. Through the connections of his mother-in-law’s father Alexey Kravtsov, Artur Sekret received the Russian citizenship and joined the military service in the 42nd MRD stationed in Chechnya as a paramedic, according to his education. Also noteworthy is the fact that the relatives of Artur Secret visited his son in the North Caucasus.
All the facts testify that this Ukrainian citizen, eligible for military duty, instead of serving in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, left his homeland at the most difficult time. Moreover, he entered the service of the Russian invaders, therefore he deserves to be exposed:
Despite the fact that Artur Sekret’s accounts restrict access to his information, we were able to identify his relatives and details of his biography. A significant role in the identification of our investigation subject was played by local insiders, as well as hacktivists. So…
