Having cross-referenced Russian-language texts I can confirm that Sergeant SOKUROV Eduard (СОКУРОВ Эдуард) did indeed die whilst serving in Syria prior to Vadim Kostenko. The distinction seems to be that Vadim Kostenko was ‘Contracted’ to serve a set time and in a set place – and was not a Career Soldier – or a Professional Specialist as was Edward Sokurov. Vadim Kostenko, therefore, was the first ‘ordinary’ Russian Army soldier to ‘die’ in Syria (but was the ‘second’ to die overall). Still, given the Great Patriotic War numbers that are dying in Donbass today – discussion of individual cases of mortality (confronting US hegemony around the world) seems almost superfluous and self-indulgent by comparison!
Neo-Nazi Ukraine: AFU Casualties Stand at a Staggering ‘264,432’ Killed! (21.5.2023)
This is about 20% of ALL losses suffered by the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) and Neo-Nazi Nationalist (Punitive) Battalions since February 22nd, 2022. According to the War Tears Project – as of May 18th, 2023 – the total losses suffered by the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) stands at 264,432 killed!
To put this in perspective, the UK lost around 342,000 killed during the entirety of WWII (1939-1945) on land, sea and air! The UK was fighting in Europe, Africa and Asia and suffered these casualties over a 6-year time period. Neo-Nazi Ukraine, however, has lost over two-thirds of the UK casualties suffered throughout WWII in just 15 months of fighting modern Russia in a relatively small geographic area! Not only are AFU casualties unusually high – but hundreds of the dead are being hastily buried with NO identification! This is because the US is demanding quick victories in return for the money and the hardware they are supplying! Tens of thousands of Ukrainian families do not know where their relatives are!
USSR: Western Cold War Deception and the Lionel ‘Buster’ Crabb Incident! (10.5.2023)
Between 1947-1956, Lionel Crabb (as an expert ‘Civilian’ Diver) was often contracted by the British government to take part in various clandestine (and hazardous) duties involving ‘spying’ and the ‘recovery’ of sensitive materials and/or individuals, etc. Much of this clandestine activity involved him gathering sensitive data relating to Soviet submarine and shipping design – as the Americans were worried about why it was that the Soviet Red Navy was producing vastly superior ships at a fraction of the cost. This explains why the British MI6 recruited Crabb (in 1956) to explore the bottom of the Soviet Cruiser named ‘Ordzhonikidze’ (Орджоникидзе). At this time, the Head of the USSR – Nikita Khrushchev (and – N. A. Bulganin) was on board the Cruiser – which was making a ‘Good Will’ diplomatic visit to Portsmouth (situated on the South Coast of the UK) – during which time the British government had given its word that there would be ‘no spying’. According to ‘Spycatcher’ author Peter Wright – Crabb was sent to investigate the propeller-system of the Soviet Cruiser despite this ‘Agreement’ – the new design of which the British Naval Intelligence wanted to know. On April 19th, 1956, Crabb dived into Portsmouth Harbour – and was never seen alive again. Crabb’s roommate at the hotel quickly ‘removed’ all his belongings and tore-out the ‘Guest Registration’ page bearing the names of ‘Crabb’ and himself as he left! Ten days later, on 29th April 1956, the British Admiralty announced that Crabb had ‘disappeared’ whilst on ‘Assignment’ at Portsmouth.
