About Military Headsets: it’s a special kind of active headsets that allows communicating over the radio and comprehending surrounding sounds simultaneously. During shooting and explosions it automatically suppresses loud surrounding sounds to protect your hearing. It also allows to increase the sound level many times (during special operations) to discover enemy at a far distance (even during heavy fog or low visibility conditions).

This particular model (MSA SORDIN 75305 SUPREME PRO) has been specifically selected due to its overall best price/quality performance. See more info here

PS: Russian aggression didn't stop despite the Minsk talks #2, the pro-Russian army are gathering heavy artillery closer to the font-line, and many anticipate another big Russian army offensive later this spring... Please continue to support Ukrainian defenders.

Thank you

Evidence of Russian army in Ukraine: a wounded Russian tank operator gave a surprising interview to the Russian opposition newspaper “Novaya Gazeta” on March 2, 2015.

His name is Dorzhi Batomunkuev (20 y.o). He tells the story about his Russian tank battalion crossing the border into Ukraine (Donetsk) and fighting to capture the Ukrainian city of Debaltseve. He serves in 5th tank brigade, Russian military division #46108 (from Ulan-Ude, eastern Russia).

The article is in Russian language here
(Partial translation:

Some of the key points from it:

On Feb 8, 2015, Dorzhi Batomunkuev's battalion received an emergency order to cross the border (from Rostov, Russia into Donetsk, Ukraine). There were about 300 Russian soldiers in his battalion, 31 tanks, 9 APCs, 5 trucks with amo. Most of the people were from his home town Ulan-Ude, eastern Russia.

At first they moved into Donetsk (with orders to avoid contacts with local civilians). Their first mission was to capture a Ukrainian village, and they successfully accomplished it. Dorzhi tells that local rebels are not eager to fight at all, and most of the war is done by Russian soldiers. In many villages (e.g. Makeevka), local civilians hate Russians, and they had to be very careful.

Their next mission was to capture a Ukrainian city of Debaltseve (note: even after Putin signed the peace treaty #2 in Minsk). There was a big tank battle there, many Russian soldiers were killed. Dorzhi himself got a severe burns on his face and hands, while trying to escape from his burning tank.

Dorzhi doesn’t not know if he will get paid or not, he says that his Russian commanders may just fire him (and back-date it), to make it look like he was just a volunteer there.

With his face completely burned he is disabled for life, but still he doesn’t regret anything, because "it’s all for the greater good of Russia". Back in Russia, they all watched TV about “bad things” and “nazis” in Ukraine, and he says he will fight just like his grandpa fought in WW2.

He says that Putin is a very cunning person, because Putin openly says “there is no Russian army in Ukraine”, and at the same time orders soldiers “Go, go into Ukraine!”.

Dorzhi believes that “Putin protects Russian interests, because if Ukraine joins European Union or United Nations, the enemy rockets will be next to Russian border". Clearly, Dorzhi doesn’t even know what United Nations stands for, but he is ready to follow Putin’s orders.

How much more evidence of Russian aggression in Ukraine does the world need? Why U.S.A. still hesitates to provide defensive weapons to Ukraine?

MaydanSF continues to support Ukrainian army. Last month, with the help of your donations, we sent/contributed to the following projects

1) we sent $1000 toward thermal imaging device (teplovizor) - to (Повернись Живим) group (via Vitaliy Deynega

2) radio scanner (AR8200-MK3) to #COMBATUA group (via Igor Fedirko)

3) three radios (BFDX TD501) to Roman Donik's volunteer group (via Sofya Timoshenko)

4) 2 pairs of pants for the military scouts - to the volunteer from Kharkiv (Tatiana).

Ukraine soldiers need your help. Despite the Minsk peace treaty #2, there is little hope that Putin will hold on to it. After the second peace treaty was signed (Feb 12, 2015), Russian army attacked and captured the city of Debaltsevo, many Ukrainian soldiers has been killed there. Every help/donation you can contribute is essential to Ukrainian soldiers these days.

You can donate via PayPal to or click We work closely with many Ukrainian volunteers that support front-line army groups. We use donations to buy equipment that is requested by the volunteers/army-groups. We also take care of delivery from #SanFrancisco to #Ukraine (usually through people who travels to Ukraine). We maintain all spending records, and make sure we optimally spend available resources.

Thank you! Слава Україні!
