    He was in a communications/intelligence unit I think, because he spoke fluent Mandarin. As a result he did not participate in front line fighting, but may have participated in august storm in an auxiliary role.

    Nice video, congrats; I thought those S-S missiles were kinda obsolte by now.

    Could someone translate this please?

    By the way, this vehicle is one that Lebed got himself while fighting the Georgians in 2008. Somewhere in this thread there was an article about this vehicle and Lebed himself, unfortunately I do not have it saved.

    Nah, the buggy is somewhat older, they made it in 2006 or 2007, but Lebed' did use it in 080808, there are photos of him riding it through Poti.

    PS: It feels like someone tries to start a flamewar here. Chill down, guys!

A man wearing "papakha" is the Commander of the airbase Colonel Nikolai Gostev:



    That day later his Su-24 plane crashed 90 kilometers away of the airfield (engines failure). Both pilots survived and are safe and sound now.

    Of course, because he is the owner of the car - the rest of the "good people" in the photo is not of the 45-th regiment.



    And here Lebed explains the President of "as they have come to such a life" (in the background - Iveco).

    This Lebed fellow always reminds me of a lieutenant first class who was our platoon leader and principal instructor during conscription; an old school soldier, expert of survival and killing in general. On top of that he even kinda looks like Lebed. A living legend in his own right with somewhat pyromanic tendencies
