Elite GRU Spetsnaz Soldier Alexei Milchakov Posts Photo of Himself Sniping during “Ceasefire” near Luhansk in Eastern Ukraine

Milchakov, a well-known Russian GRU Spetsnaz soldier, “little green man,” and notorious for being a sadist and Nazi sympathizer, operates currently as the commander of “Batman,” a rapid response unit of the self-declared Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) operating out of Luhansk.
On October 12th, Milchakov posted a photograph of himself on his VKontakte page, taking aim from a vantage point overlooking a railway bridge with a Russian made SVD-K 9.3mm sniper rifle.

Milchakov is well known for his participation in Russia’s semi-covert warfare campaign in Eastern Ukraine, involving killing and torture of Ukrainians via its proxy, self-declared “LPR.”
“LPR” are known to be a proxy/subsidiary organization of Russian military intelligence (GRU). Read further in a War Log exclusive here.Milchakov first gained notoriety as a sadist puppy killer before he rose in Russia’s military ranks to become part of the elite Spetsnaz unit in GRU.

More recently, Milchakov became the partner of alleged FSB agent Yulia Kharlamov accused by Ukrainian media of organizing the violence at the National Guard protests in Kiev, Ukraine on October 13th.
