The Vostok Brigade Continues to Take Casualties in Washington’s Manufactured War

‘Novi partisani’, posing in a frigid morning. “Filin”, “The Owl”.  Instructor for Vostok Brigade at Yasynuvata. That’s him in the middle of the second row, looking down.  He was from Makeevka, DNR.  Died on 16 November defending his homeland against US-backed Nazis.  He was 22 years old and recently married to Julia. RESPECT, Brother. (Click on this image for best resolution).


FILIN (the phonetic spelling of Филин, “Eagle Owl”) was an instructor for the Vostok Brigade at Yasynuvata when I joined the Novorussian Army in December 2014 (see https://www.greanvillepost.com/2015/11/01/texac-chronicle-no-7-there-is-no-water-in-yasynuvata/ ).  He was only 21 years old at the time, but he was already a combat veteran who seemed much older, despite his baby face.  He was someone I respected from the moment I met him. He was a brave and serious soldier and an excellent instructor. He was also a genuinely nice guy.  He was from Makeevka, just outside Donetsk. He was defending the land he was born in from foreign-backed Nazis who were coming here to enslave the Russian speaking people of Donbass. He refused to be a slave and was willing to fight and die to protect others. He was a quiet guy who led and encouraged others by his own example. He was brave, kind and generous.  He was exactly the kind of guy this world needs more of.  Fedorov Ruslan Petrovich, “Eagle Owl” will be missed.”


Eagle Owl
“Fedorov Ruslan Petrovich. Not just a friend of mine, or of Novorossiya, this Hero was an example and a friend to all good people in the world.  We will build a monument to Heroes like this, hopefully in Kiev after we liberate it.”—Texac

Ruslan’s Wedding: Civil Ceremony
The people in arms. Life must go on.
Nothing extravagant, nothing grotesquely excessive. But touching in their honesty, comradeship and simplicity.  What a contrast with the decadent West.

Novorossiya will endure.
The people rise against the Kiev usurpers.

This video features a famous song by David Bowie. At the beginning of the video you can see marches supporting Russia that took place in the South-East of Ukraine where the Russian-speaking population is predominating. The marches were a response to Euromaidan in Kiev, where there was Russophobia and elements of neo-Nazism. The video shows us how ordinary people rose up against the violation of their rights and freedoms; against neo-Nazism and political persecution; how ordinary people became warriors; became a heroes, and it doesn’t matter that only for a one day.

  1. Vale Fedorov Ruslan Petrovich! Your sacrifice shall be remembered and honoured by generations to come. Pity fate kills those who deserve better and longer lives while sparing the Kiev criminals.

  2. The arch capitalist/criminals in Washington are moving their Kiev-junta pawns east in another buildup. This time they are playing to crush the Donbas -no more call-ups of untrained, unwilling unemployed laborers.The 300 US army mercenaries (all US troops are mercenaries) are carefully training battalions of ideologically rabid west Ukrainians that are being slowly deployed for the next assault.

  3. Russell BonnerTo All,

    Thanks for this. Ruslan was the 10th Brother I have lost this year, and he was one of the best. Also, he WAS the youngest. You do him, me, and yourselves great honor by remembering him. He truly was a friend and an example to all the world. We need more guys like him in the world, and instead, our goddam government kills guys like him. There is little doubt the sniper who killed Ruslan was paid and trained by the USA. The optics the sniper used almost certainly came from the USA.

    And now Obama ( and the Republicans) send another $800 million to the ukrop nazis. To kill more people here. Which is what they’re doing.

    Two guys very high up in the NAF have both told me the same thing – when the ground gets frozen solid, then will come “The Big Ukrop Offensive”. That’s about the 5th time I’ve heard that since I got here, but ya never know. The world is crazy these days. I’d rather be here than there, even if this turns out to be The Alamo. Everywhere may be The Alamo soon. They can’t say we didn’t tell ’em so…

    Good luck, Comrades, and keep up the good work. Words are as strong as bullets. I am proud to be working with you, and I appreciate your support.



  4. These fighters know their chances of survival are minuscule, and yet they take their convictions to another level–knowing full well the end is likely imminent for them. Yet, they elect the probability of death, preferring to perish for their principles over surviving without dignity. This beautiful young man was just beginning his life with his lovely partner, and now he’s gone.

  5. Moved me to tears. What a repulsive, criminal cabal have the American people allowed in the highest levels of power! They sow death and pillage and lies everywhere they go—which is everywhere!

    America is finished as a nation of some promise—always far more in theory than practice. Now it is just a gigantic, deeply sociopathic mafia controlling by lies, fearmongering and blandishments an enormous aggregation of fools.

    As long as this excremental pile exists, good, decent people like Feodorv Ruslan will have to die.
