A forthcoming article establishes a connection between Vladislav Surkov and the Russian Invasion of East Ukraine (I can’t bring myself to call it a hybrid war). The article at Russia Funds and Manages Conflict in Ukraine, Leaks Show is the basis for the article… which uses InformNapalm documents taken from Vladislav Surkov’s computer. It establishes a direct link between Russian leadership and LPR and DNR.
- Russia dumped a lot of very old equipment, likely surplus, into East Ukraine/Donbass.
- Russian active duty military units have rotated in and out of Donbass.
These two points will be the focus of research and, hopefully, future articles.
