(Jesus Christ doesn't evacuate His troops, He leads them to victory.)
Dmitry Tymchuk set up the Center of Military and Political Research to counter Russian propaganda lies about the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula on Feb. 27th.
Dmitry Tymchuk has served in the Army air defense from 1995-1998, the National Guard from 1998-2000 and in the Defense Ministry in subsequent years on missions to Iraq, Lebanon and Kosovo.
Also, he is one of the coordinators of the “Information Resistance.” During this ongoing 2014 conflict in Ukraine, he is cited extensively on situations in the country as an independent source.
Dmitry Tymchuk is currently followed by 187,836 people. Most recognizable photo Dmitry Tymchuk of social networks - the one on which he helmet and field uniform standing under palm trees. In "real life," retired Lieutenant Colonel looks not so militant: a man in his forties, in a blue shirt, jeans and sneakers. We met on neutral territory - a summer area cafe. People that work, Dmitry "shine" does not want to. Kiyani recognize him: sitting at the next table a man took out his phone and takes a picture. A few minutes later wedged into the conversation. "Look - it stretches smartphone with an open note that the Federation Council repealed the authorization to use the Russian army in Ukraine. - Can you comment? ". "Yeah, it's kind of garbage. When the troops would be taken, then it will be possible "- responds Tymchuk unwittingly demonstrating the basic principle of work of the group: the information must be confirmed from multiple sources that you trust. Command is inadequate Dmitry Tymchuk tankista raised in a family, in the seventh grade learned to drive a tank. Was convinced that this is his calling. After high school, however, he entered the engineering college in Berdichev. Time was perestroika, in college produced a wall newspaper "Komsomol Spotlight" and Tymchuk commissioned to lead this body unprintable. He immediately renamed "Spotlight" in TNT - TNT and started investigations. Figured out, for example, what happened to the five VCRs purchased to improve the learning process, and why the set of equipment purchased for VIA college, no one saw, but he flashes regularly at weddings. "When I posted this whole tops, headmistress college newspaper and immediately took off dragging the City Committee of the Komsomol, as she said," for examination. "We were fortunate that the third party secretary was ideological, believed in me and supported perestroika ", - says Dmitry. Soon he had published in the local newspaper, which suggested that the executive secretary to act in Lviv military-political school to study journalism. The place was "Majeure", but felt close disintegration of the Union, so the competition was small, unable to act. After receiving a diploma in 1995, the newly lieutenant went to work not by function: he was sent to defense forces deputy commander automobile company. Rota was completed on leftovers: there commanders gave soldiers, with whom was not sorry to leave. "Everything is inadequate air defense forces in Ukraine were collected in my unit" - laughing Tymchuk. He quickly realized that you need to escape from avtoroty, but still served there for two years, which is now no regrets: there he received a thorough account of the army. Next was Simferopol, the press service of the National Guard. Here Dmitry acquired first contacts with the security agencies that it came in handy today. From Iraq with love. The most famous photograph of a group facilitator ICs made in Essaouira In 2000 Natsgvardiyu disbanded. Reopen several roads: to leave to serve in the internal troops, move to Glaucus MIA or return to the army. Tymchuk chose the latter and worked in the Ministry of Defence. Retired on superannuation. Prior to this time to visit Lebanon, Kosovo and Iraq. In the Iraqi Essaouira and was made most famous photo Tymchuk - under the palm trees. In parallel with the service Dmitry engaged two public projects in 2008 after the Russian-Georgian war, he organized the Center for Military-Political Studies and the site "Fleet-2017." At the time, few people have paid attention: the possibility of Russia's aggression was not treated seriously. "We wrote back then that the Russian Black Sea fleet - a time bomb on our territory - said Tymchuk. - If you google, you can find our articles, just in society was unclaimed this topic. " RESISTANCE MOVEMENT Group "Information resistance" from March to May this year was probably the only organization which promptly informed the public about the course of events in the Crimea and eastern Ukraine. Refer to it ambiguously. Platoon commander Theodosia Marine battalion Vlad Jagiello said that during the Crimean events not suspected the existence of such a group. Later, when interested in her work, I realized that this information from him "neither cold nor hot." According to him, the project would cost the volunteers to do the work on which will be a real benefit: for example, the calculation of "moles" in the General Staff. Tymchuk group began working in late February 2014, when the staff of the Center for Political Studies military realized that Russia planned a major operation on the peninsula. First-time positions gained at best a few dozen likes, friends there were about a hundred people. In March, on the background of the events in the Crimea, this changed dramatically. "Therefore, brethren, the summary of March 2, the next day of an alien invasion ..." - then Tymchuk wrote on his page. After this preface, was a list of troubling news. The very first message format "Information Bureau" has received nearly two thousand census. At first I could not believe that such operations will actively use the Russian military. Then Center experts have assumed that most of the work will take the FSB agents, who for years was created and financed by Russia. When the picture began to emerge, drew attention to the information vacuum in Ukraine. State agencies were silent, while the Russian propaganda machine ran at full capacity. To counter it was necessary to give a true operational information of the locations of the conflict. Center staff prepared a memo that was sent to the new leadership of the Council of National Security and Defence. It wrote that the urgent need to intensify counter-propaganda, under the auspices of the National Security Council to create a coordinating body and informing. Memo reviewed on March 2. Center said that there are state-run media, which will be engaged in this work. "When we realized that the state will not be scratched, have formed a group, called" News resistance "by analogy with the resistance movement in occupied Europe" - says Tymchuk. Project volunteer, even had to climb into the piggy bank. Financial assistance received from the outside only once: a few entrepreneurs gathered for a project about a thousand dollars, which the group spent on building site. From the very beginning, the EC was based on personal contacts of three coordinators - retirees. They communicated with the officers in parts mediatsentrov MoD staff, intelligence, border guards. Immediately introduced the principle: anonymity and secrecy. Now no one knows how many people are working on IP: coordinators communicate with their sources they trust, but do not know their contacts. Newcomers to the group do not take work only with those who know personally. To prune misinformation, built in IP system to verify the information: it spread only if it is not confirmed by three interdependent sources. How the system works, Tymchuk explains the example reports on the use of new Russian-made MANPADS "Verba", of which over 6 June Slavic downed aircraft AN-26. Even before this incident, a group received information from two sources of local that brought to the city, "Willow." Post held until receipt of evidence. They became the downed plane: Air Force headquarters in the winery reported that AH was hit at a height of 4050 meters, the specifications for a range of fire is only capable of "Willow." Daily reports "Information resistance" on Facebook read more than 160 thousand people, and a week ago, there were less than ten thousand. Tymchuk said that in June in IP work diminished. When finally created NSDC information center, Speaker ATO Vladislav Seleznev promptly inform about events in the Donbass, the group is only "information plugging holes", if they exist. Now former military allows himself to sleep for six hours a day, although more recently managed to rest no more than two or three hours. He did not rule out that "Information resistance" will soon cease to work, it makes no sense to duplicate information. Well, for the lustration Dmitry Tymchuk says that the status of volunteer work easier, although participants IP lured high office that he, for example, promised to the rank of general. But he does not believe that the army can be changed from within. "We need a political process that would address all areas of society. We constantly criticize - that's corruption in the army. So we all corruption. If the doctor buy sick leave for 50 hryvnia, it's just a piece of general phenomenon, what surprised when ten bucks missing pieces armored column? "- Sets the retired lieutenant colonel rhetorical question. Lieutenant Colonel convinced army needs lustration adequate counterintelligence work, because now the General Staff of the Russian agents flooded. And military officials do not necessarily buy, in the course can go elemental blackmail. While not much to solve this problem: some of the military with big stars on their epaulettes and are now involved in decision-making, and their names appear in the records of the investigation. "The people who killed the army and forced her to degrade, have NOT changed. They can not after Maidana two hours completely reformatted and now work in the interests of the country. Military officials need check what you did when Lebedev at SALAMATIN at if? If there is reason, you can simply to rotate optionally immediately take a pen and begin to electric shocks, but, at least, suspend operational information. Keep these people in key positions, on which depend the lives of our children and the success of the operation, - the madness "- sure Tymchuk. Positive changes in his opinion, the army is there, but only up to the battalion level, above - distinct reshuffle is not as visible. From the Ukrainian Information Bureau How does the project "resistance" * section Alpha Receives and verifies operational information from sources in the Ukrainian state institutions section Bravo Collecting information on terrorist groups, information about corruption in law enforcement agencies, oversees procurement of ammunition section Delta Analyzes the external threat to Ukraine, including the part of the Russian Federation section Echo Is analyzing the economic effects of war on Russia and Ukraine section Whiskey Obtains information from sources in diplomatic circles, including from Brussels, where the EU headquarters section Foxtrot Analyze information received from so-called emissaries in a combat zone * Another section - Charlie united local agents in Crimea (only civil). After the middle of March to the beginning of the peninsula to work powerfully Russian FSB, this section was closed, so as not to expose people to danger Alexey Baturin, Focus http://focus.ua/society/309859/
