Activists Ruslan Leviev and Vadim Korovin say
they decided to launch their own investigation into the deaths of Russian
servicemen in Ukraine. To back their accusations, they released photographs and
video from a graveyard in Tambov Oblast, where a soldier identified as Anton
Savelyev was recently buried.

“This
is our response to Russian propaganda that says there are no troops in
Ukraine,” Leviev told the Kyiv Post by phone. “We want to show society that our
Defense Ministry is literally abandoning its own troops by disavowing them like
this. … We are showing society the consequences of this war.”

A video of the grave shows
a photograph of a young man in full military uniform, the mound of dirt over
the grave adorned with flowers and a large wreath.
