Putin screwed by selfie-addict soldier

This is kind of nuts.  A Russian soldier has posted about 500 selfies to instagram while he serves in the current conflict with Ukraine.  Despite Russia's claims that they are not actively working with pro-Russian rebels in the Ukraine, the geotagging in his photos clearly shows that he has been active in an area held by exactly those rebels.

Imagine being in the room with Putin when he found out about this and saw the douchey looking selfies for the first time.

The Instagram account of a Russian solider may have landed under-pressure Vladimir Putin in hot water after the app's photomap placed 24-year-old Sanya Sotkin's selfies in rebel-held Ukrainian territory.

The selfie-addicted solider's Instagram may be vital in proving Russia's involvement in the Ukrainian civil war after images show the active-duty Sotkin operating in the disputed territory.

This is despite Moscow denying any involvement in the conflict which saw Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 tragically shot down, killing 298 people on board.

The Instagram photomap shows the Russian, near the Ukrainian towns of Kranaya Talovka and Krasnyi Derkul, in images taken earlier this month.

One selfie posted on 5 July, shows Sotkin in rebel controlled territory near the town of Krasny Derkul.

Ukrainian armed forces have engaged in day-long break in its campaign to reclaim the east of the country as investigators probe try to establish a safe-zone around flight MH17's crash site.

The 24-year-old soldier has claimed to be a Russian communications expert on Instagram. On July 7, he said" ‘I still don’t understand what we’re doing here, so we’re continuing to go slightly crazy, listen to #swedishhousemafia and wait for new news from Ukraine!’

On the engineer's profile, there is an extensive diary of the soldier's training, each easily traceable through the Instagram service. However, Russian forces will likely clamp down on such communications which US forces will be using to collect intelligence.

One commenter even congratulated the Russian on his new-found fame in the western media - although his superiors are unlikely to be as positive.

 

Damnit, I can't figure out how to get the pics from the article.  They have it set up so you can't download or hotlink images apparently.

That's exactly what stands out to me as being so crazy about this.  Imagine being some dumbass 22 year old kid trying to pass your time and impress girls or whatever by posting a bunch of shit online and accidentally becoming a sworn enemy of Vladimir fucking Putin, one of the most ruthless and powerful men on earth, in the process.  Sounds like a dumb Seth Rogen movie or something.

And?

You actually think there are no Russians volunteering to go fight in Ukraine? Like anyone who would go there is only doing so because they're being forced to by the boogeyman?

oh, dude, you are about to be fucked up the ass by a R-7 Soyuz

In Soviet Russia, Instagram shoots you.

Testiculos Ferro - And?

Putin ruthless? that's rich.

Putin didn't go around the world killing hundreds of thousands of people based on false WMD info.

Putin didn't destroy a high human rights nation Libya and cheerlead the execution and live sodomization of its leader.

can't believe how brainwashed people are.

Putin is THE MOST respected leader in the world at the moment. this is UNDENIABLE.

There are always mercenaries on any side in any conflict in the last 50 years. This conflict is not any different.
