Business FM talked to the graduates of the school Chepiga, including one who is mentioned in the investigation photo

In the Bellingcat investigation serviceman Anatoly the Chapiha called the Hero of Russia and one of the alleged poisoners Skrobala, whom the British identified as Ruslan Bashirov. However, in London believe that this is not his real name.
The Insider and Bellingcat say that Anatoly Chapiha — native village of Nikolayevka in the Amur region, graduated from far Eastern higher military command school, served in the 14th brigade of the GRU.
In the investigation it was said that Anatoly detect the Chapiha succeeded with the help of photographs taken in Chechnya. The authors argued that knowing the approximate age “Bashirov”, was looking at photos of graduates of military schools 2001-2003. But in the photo where supposedly discovered Chapiha, it is not said that there is the graduates of these years.

Has already become famous the picture of ten men in camouflage uniforms and hats posing in nature, can be found on the website of the far Eastern higher military command school.

In the investigation it was noted that although in this photo it is difficult to make any conclusions, it was an additional reason to continue the search for “Bashirova” among the graduates of the far Eastern school. And on some of the Chapiha, who served in Chechnya and age could be “Bocharovym”, and his address in 2003-2005 coincided with the address of the military unit, corresponding to the 14th brigade of the GRU.
The photo, by the way, are still not removed from the site of the school — although it would seem that if the graduate became an agent, which carries out covert operations abroad, and even lit up in this scandal, this picture should not be there. Anyway, Pavel Shitov in 2007 left forum comment in which he writes that he is in this photo. Here’s how he responded to the question of producer of radio:
