As we know, on January 13, 2017, Russian mass media informed about the replacement of the command of the 58th Army of the Southern Military District of Russia. Major General Yevgeniy Nikiforov became the new Commander-in-Chief of the 58th Army which is the most involved in military operations. He replaced Major General Sergey Kuzovlev, who had been appointed Commander-in-Chief only five months before. Both generals had had assignments to Ukraine.
The life of Major General Yevgeniy Valerievich Nikiforov is full of significant events: two assignments to Chechnya (1995 and 2000), followed by appointment to the position of Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the 58th Army (Vladikavkaz). From spring of 2015 till July, 2016, he commanded the “army of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR)”. His call sign is Tambov.
We know, that call sign Tambov is transferable and used to belong to Major General Kuzovlev. As early as in January, 2015, we published a story on him and his role in military operations on the temporarily occupied territory of the Donbas. In March-April, 2015, Kuzovlev was recalled to Russia. He was replaced with Major General Yevgeniy Nikiforov who inherited the same call sign, Tambov.
InformNapalm is going to continue this series with more stories. In our next publications, we will give an account of missions to Donbas, which the Russian military command tried to cover. Their confidential details were leaked through the chief of staff of one of the units within the 58th Army of Russia.
