Founded by sadistic neo-Nazi paratrooper Aleksei Milchakov, the Rusich militia group has sent out propaganda encouraging mercenaries to “spill gallons of blood from vile Russophobes.”
A gang of Russian neo-Nazi mercenaries who sadistically collect the ears of enemies are said to be stationed in Ukraine.
The militia group, dubbed Rusich, has been spotted on the Russian-Ukrainian border near where Vladimir Putin’s forces are expected to launch their next offensive.
The unit is linked to the private Kremlin-backed Wagner Group military company, which reportedly currently has 1,000 troops deployed in eastern Ukraine.
Rusich was founded in St Petersburg almost a decade ago by Red Army paratroopers Aleksei Milchakov, 30, and Yan Petrovsky, 33 – after the two met at a white supremacist event.
It quickly rose to prominence in 2014 during fighting between Moscow-backed separatists and the Ukrainian military.

Milchakov has previously posted horrific images of himself cutting off the ears of dead soldiers on social media. reports The Times.
On his Vkontakte account, he has also shared snaps of him carving the Kolovrat, a Slavic far-right swastika.
And has previously bragged about being a neo-Nazi, claiming he “got high on the smell of burned human flesh.”

His account also includes a photo of him beating off a puppy’s head as a teenager.
Milchakov met the co-founder Petrovsky through the Russian Imperial Movement.
Their mercenary group is believed to consist of several hundred soldiers who wear a white supremacist Valknut insignia on their uniforms.
Rusich has published a cartoon of a Russian soldier returning home with gifts for his wife and son covered in blood and stolen by Ukrainians.
The caption reads: “If you are a real man and a Russian, join our ranks.
“You will spill gallons of blood from vile Russophobes and grow rich and cool.”

Earlier this week, the sadistic mercenary unit was pictured driving into Kharkiv in military vehicles marked ‘Z’.
Ukrainian defense officials are preparing for another attack in the region.
It comes after invading Moscow forces began withdrawing from areas around the capital Kyiv after failing to occupy the city for weeks.
But in doing so, they have left evidence of alleged atrocities, including the massacre of women and children.
Some members of the Wagner group are also said to have served with Rusich.
Both organizations share far-right political beliefs and have ties to neo-Nazism, with both fighting side-by-side for Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
It is believed that the Wagner Group was founded by Russian ex-special forces commander Dmitri Utkin.
A photo where he is suspected shows the commander with a Nazi SS lightning bolt tattoo on the back of his neck.
